READ MOREBefore and during the gathering, IFF spokespeople and Iranian-American walkers will be available for media interviews.

The gathering is the culmination of the Iran Freedom Walk, a 200-mile journey on foot aimed at promoting awareness between Iranians and Americans. Led by Dr. Jerome Corsi, IFF Founder and author of the recent book Atomic Iran *, the walk kicked off from Independence Mall in Philadelphia, PA on May 16th. Over the course of nine days, Dr. Corsi and a group of Iranian-Americans have walked over 100 miles, sharing their message of freedom along the way.

Now, they are bringing their message of support for reform-minded Iranians to the nation's capital for a day-long gathering aimed at increasing awareness about the plight of Iranians under their repressive government. The event will also be broadcast in real time to millions of Iranians via satellite, just a few weeks before their presidential election. It is crucial that the IFF's message for peaceful, non-violent change reach Iranians before they go to the polls.
