Radio Farda was a participant or observer in the following events:

Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) introduces the Iran Democracy Act (S. 1082) to encourage regime change in Iran. The bill would require the US to adopt a policy aimed at supporting “an internationally-monitored referendum in Iran by which the Iranian people can peacefully change the system of government in Iran.” It would also ensure that Radio Farda, a US-sponsored effort to improve the United States’ image among Iranians, devotes “a significant percentage of [its] programming… to discussing democratic change in Iran including an internationally-monitored democratic referendum in Iran.” (Office of Senator Sam Brownback 5/19/2003; US Congress. Senate. 5/19/2003) The bill never becomes law. (GovTrack (.us) 5/19/2003)
