PRESS RELEASE COLORADANS WELCOME CONGRESSIONAL SUPPORT FOR RETURNING TO IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL

Denver, December 27, 2020: Coloradans for Middle East Diplomacy & Peace, a
grassroots coalition, welcomes the public support shown by 150 U.S. Representatives, including Representatives Diana DeGette, Ed Perlmutter, Joe Neguse, and Jason Crow for the Biden administration’s commitment to return on a compliance-for-compliance basis to the Iran Nuclear Agreement (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA). They signed a Congressional letter (https://tinyurl.com/ycjwqcg3) to President-elect Biden stating that “diplomacy is the best path to halt and reverse Iran’s nuclear program, decrease tensions in the region, and facilitate our nation’s reincorporation into the international community.”

We also urge Senator Michael Bennet and Senator-elect John Hickenlooper to show their public support for a clean return to the JCPOA. Coloradans for Middle East Diplomacy & Peace is a coalition of grassroots-led chapters of national organizations J Street, the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL), the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), Jewish Voice for Peace, and others.

We recognize that there are significant disputes between the U.S. and Iran, including over regional security and human rights concerns. However, such tensions are
worsened by sanctions and military threats, whereas diplomacy has succeeded on the nuclear issue. Restoring the JCPOA provides a sound platform for further diplomacy to address the full range of areas of disagreement between the U.S. and Iran. The public is invited to our large virtual event at 5:30pm MST on Thursday, January 21
(https://tinyurl.com/COFORJCPOA) to support a return to the JCPOA. We’ll be cohosting it with the Center for Middle East Studies at Denver University. The event will
feature the insights of Nader Hashemi (Center for Middle East Studies), Barbara Slavin (Atlantic Council), Trita Parsi (Quincy Institute), Hassan El-Tayyab (FCNL), and Dylan
Williams (J Street).
