TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Students at Florida State are also trying to get involved in helping those affected by President Trump's executive order.

Amnesty International at FSU is an organization that aims to provide students with the resources they need to make it through this difficult time.

This organization's goal is to make sure that every person is able to enjoy all human rights through raising awareness, acting on urgent issues, and avocation.

One Iranian student reached out to share his story with them:

"So they are a 4th year Ph.D student here in civil and environmental engineering who also works on campus as a research person, and they are very afraid that they might lose their position," said Ciara Bennese with Amnesty International FSU. "So, they also have their finances here in Tallahassee and they don't know how long they will be apart, it could be 3 months, it could be a lot longer."

If you or someone you know is affected by the executive order, the organization is asking you to share it with them on their Facebook page.
