Senator Moran's Message about the Concerns of the KU Iranian Students

Protecting human dignity, promoting personal freedom, and strengthening global women’s rights and democratic movements are key elements to our country’s foreign policy. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee for State and Foreign Operations that funds our aid programs overseas, it is important that our tax dollars are used to promote these goals.
