Sept. 12th: An Evening in Support of the Bahá’ís of Iran

Dear friends,

I would like to personally invite you all to a public gathering in support of religious freedom and human rights in Iran, which will be hosted by Bahá’ís from communities in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area on Saturday, September 12 at 7 p.m. at the Lisner Auditorium of George Washington University. The event is dedicated to seven Iranian Baha’i leaders who have been imprisoned in Tehran for more than a year on false charges stemming from their membership with the country’s Baha’i religious minority.

  • What: A moving and dignified evening of arts, multimedia and presentations.
  • When: Saturday Sept 12th – 7PM
  • Where: George Washington University, Lisner Auditorium. 730 21st St NW, Washington, DC
  • Admission: This event is free and open to the public.

Confirmed guests include:

The program will also feature arts and a moving multimedia presentation with comments from local Washington DC Metro Area Bahá’ís that have been personally affected by the continued persecution in Iran. Van Gilmer and the Washington Metropolitan Baha’i Chorale will perform three songs, so I would be delighted if you could join me for this special event.
