Resources and Support for Those Impacted by Unrest in Iran
In recent weeks, Iran has experienced widespread unrest in cities throughout the country, where protests have erupted following the death of Mahsa Amini. We are deeply saddened by the death of Ms. Amini and the deaths of protesters inside Iran.
UC San Diego is committed to upholding fundamental human rights. We stand in solidarity against the use of violence, repression and discrimination. Our thoughts are with those impacted and with our community members who have connections to the region and who are worried about their families and loved ones.
We understand that events of this nature can affect everyone in different ways. If you are experiencing feelings of grief or anxiety, UC San Diego has resources to support you.
