Abstract

Rudy Simons serves on the Board of the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights. He traveled to Iran, for two weeks in March of 2007, with 23 Americans from all over the United States. They were members of the Fellowship for Reconciliation (FFR), an International group, established in 1914, based in New York. FFR is one of the few groups granted visas to Iran. The group, comprised of 14 women and 9 men, studied and read about Iran for months prior to the trip. As there are no American flights to Iran, the group flew in from London. They were provided an air-conditioned bus for their travels.
