Human rights violations in Iran, have forced many Iranians to seek refugee status in other countries. OMID Advocates For Human Rights, in collaboration with renowned graphic artist, photographer, and cinematographer, Serge Hamad and internationally recognized musicians, Arash Sobhani and Pezhham Akhavass, present this exhibit to raise awareness and funding about the ongoing human rights violations in Iran. Proceeds will go towards helping refugees with medical aid, housing fees, and education and tuition.

“Take a Stand” will inspire all to be a voice for change. No matter what race, religion, or nationality, we are all owed the same human and civil rights. Please join OMID Advocates for 3 evenings of art, music, and culture for a cause that needs your support. Proceeds will go directly towards helping refugees with medical aid, housing fees, education and tuition, etc. through OMID Advocates’ Refugee Assistance Program. Let us be a voice for those whose cries for freedom and equality are not easily heard and let us “Take a Stand!”
