Appeal to Iran: Let Atena Go!

Another Artist Sentenced to Prison for Satirizing Political Figures

"Drawing For Atena"

For the story on this compelling drama going on in Iran, link to: Amnesty International Atena Farghadani
The young artist has several days to make an appeal. If you agree the sentence was harsh, let your voice be heard on social media. Even if Ms. Farghadani loses her appeal, there is hope for a presidential pardon or intervention by the Supreme Leader on her behalf. Iran #FreeAtena, #Draw4Atena.

Also, link to "Comic Riffs" by my friend and colleague Michael Cavna of the Washington Post for his article calling for artists to support the appeal of Ms. Farghadani's egregious sentence. Link to Comic Riffs Open Call to Artists. #Draw4Atena.
