About Us

Yalda is a network of informed and engaged individuals to engender the Iranian political processes by advocating for gender-inclusive policies and by developing a strong, effective, connected pipeline of known and rising stars amongst Iranian women and minority political leaders.

Yalda will create space for political empowerment of women and minorities to actively participate in the political process—both as leaders and as voters—through voter education and political rights initiatives, to advance and institutionalize equal rights for women.
