University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Join UCSF faculty and students for a roundtable discussion of the current protests in Iran and the Women Life Freedom uprising. Health care professionals have been arrested for treating injured protestors; ambulances are being used to ambush, shoot, and arrest people. Collaborators, teachers, and students of the UCSF community are among the peaceful protestors. Hear from your Iranian colleagues about their experiences and share ideas about how to support scholars currently under threat.
