About Us

The Folly of Attacking Iran Tour was a large project and relied on the generous support and effort of many organizations and individuals.  The following organizations played a lead role in organizing the 2008 tour:

Americans for Informed Democracy

Americans for Informed Democracy (AID) is a non-partisan organization that brings the world home through programming on more than 1,000 U.S. university campuses and in more than 10 countries. AID fulfills its mission by coordinating town hall meetings on America's role in the world, hosting leadership retreats, and publishing opinion pieces and reports on issues of global importance. Through these efforts, AID seeks to build a new generation of globally conscious leaders who can shape an American foreign policy appropriate for our increasingly interdependent world.

Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation

The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation is dedicated to enhancing international peace and security and protecting the American people from the threat of weapons of mass destruction. The Center seeks to reduce and ultimately eliminate nuclear weapons as a tool of U.S. national security policy, halt the spread of all weapons of mass destruction, stop the deployment of a national missile defense system, and redirect national security spending to better address the genuine threats facing the United States.

Cultures of Resistance Network

Worldwide, people from all walks of life are finding creative ways to oppose war and promote peace, justice, and sustainability. Culture, including film, music, and food, is critical terrain for this struggle. CULTURES OF RESISTANCE, a project of the Lee + Gund Foundation, was established to identify and support these diverse initiatives. The Lee + Gund Foundation has provided valuable support.

Just Foreign Policy

Just Foreign Policy is an independent and non-partisan membership organization. Just Foreign Policy is dedicated to reforming U.S. foreign policy to serve the interests and reflect the values of the broad majority of Americans, rather than those of special interests both inside and outside of government.

National Iranian American Council

Founded in early 2002, the National Iranian-American Council is a non-partisan, non-political, non-sectarian, and non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Iranian-American participation in American civic life.

Peace Action

Peace Action is the nation's largest grassroots peace network, with chapters and affiliates in 30 states. Peace Action organizes its grassroots network to place pressure on Congress and the Administration through write-in campaigns, internet actions, citizen lobbying and direct action. Through a close relationship with progressive members of Congress, Peace Action plays a key role in devising strategies to move forward peace legislation, and, as a leading member of United for Peace and Justice and the Win Without War coalition, Peace Action lends its expertise and large network to achieving common goals.

Physicians for Social Responsibility

Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) is a non-profit advocacy organization that is the medical and public health voice for policies to stop nuclear war and proliferation and to slow, stop and reverse global warming and toxic degradation of the environment. PSR’s 32,400 medical and health professionals and concerned citizen members, 31 PSR chapters, over 60 Student PSR chapters at medical and public health schools, and over 25,000 e-activists, along with national and chapter board members and staff, form a unique nationwide network committed to a safe and healthy world.

The tour has been made possible with the generous support of the Colombe Foundation, the Lee and Gund Foundation, The Pluralism Fund, the Cathleen D. Stone and James M. Stone Foundation and our individual supporters.
