Last week, the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM), the Voice of America (VOA) and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) held a launch event on Capitol Hill for VOA365: a 24/7 Persian-language global network targeting Iranian audiences and the Persian-speaking diaspora around the world. 

Thank you to all who joined us in person.  In case you missed the event, you can:
