Sign petition for American Pastor to be freed from hanging as he faces Hanging judge

American Pastor Saeed Abedini will face a trial in Iran for his Christian faith in just days.

After sustaining painful beatings in Iran's brutal Evin Prison, he has been told that he "will hang" for his "faith in Jesus."

Monday, for the first time, his Iranian attorney was able to see the charge brought against him. He will be tried by one of Iran's notorious "hanging judges."

While the U.S. State Department has stated it has "serious concerns" about the imprisonment of Pastor Saeed, an American citizen, it has yet to call for his release.

The ACLJ is working aggressively for his freedom, urging Members of Congress, the State Department, and the United Nations to take action to secure this persecuted Pastor's freedom.

Sign the petition to save Pastor Saeed today.

Please pray for American citizen Pastor Saeed to be freed, sign the petition, pass it along and request elected officials to join in petitioning for this pastor, husband and father!
