President of CSDI
Throughout his youth, Nasser Sharif promoted democracy and human rights in Iran. While part of an Iranian student group, he publicly opposed the clerical regime and its inhumane policies. But the dangers of his actions forced him to flee from his home in Iran.
Since his arrival to the United States, Nasser has been very active to voice the Iranian people’s desire for regime change. As such, he founded and became president of the California Society for Democracy in Iran (read About Us). Local, national and international media outlets have interviewed him, publishing his views in major news papers, many of which can be found on this website.
