The Enough Fear campaign has come to New York, and earlier today New Yorkers and Iranians were speaking to each other at City Hall on red vintage phones the organization set up.

The project is part of an effort to connect citizens of both countries who "say no to war," and the goal is to create a "people to people diplomacy" link between the two countries. Nick Jehlen, the co-founder, said, "Our two governments won't talk to each other so we decided to take it into our own hands, to get to know each other and begin to work for peace. It's a lot harder to go to war against people you know."
