The Campaign for a New American Policy on Iran, composed of groups across the political spectrum including POMED, is hosting a “Time to Talk with Iran” event and press conference from 10am to 1pm at the Canon House Office building.

Members of Congress, celebrities, former officials, and other citizens will use a row of 60’s-era red “hotline” telephones to talk directly to ordinary Iranian citizens.

The event aims to underscore the need for new, responsible and effective U.S. policies and leadership to reduce the likelihood of a conflict with Iran that would have disastrous consequences.
