In March 2009, Keith Kamisugi and Steve Chin started a national campaign to seek the release of Roxana Saberi, an American journalist of Iranian and Japanese descent who was arrested in February and held in Iran on charges of espionage. For more than two months, Kamisugi and Chin worked with about a dozen folks around the country and the Asian American Journalists Association through Facebook, Twitter and our blog to highlight Roxana’s plight. Roxana was thankfully freed on May 11, 2009.
