“The Baha’is are Iran’s largest religious minority. But Iran’s government has persecuted them since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Businesses are torched, people are fired from their jobs, thousands are harassed and jailed, and hundreds have been killed.

The government also bans the Baha’is from teaching and studying in Iranian universities. But they do teach and they do study – in secret.”

“We started a campaign to fight this injustice. Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Dr Shirin Ebadi – both Nobel Peace Prize laureates – are two of our biggest supporters.

Hollywood stars like Mark Ruffalo, Rainn Wilson, Nazanin Boniadi, Justin Baldoni and Omid Djalili have endorsed the campaign. And in February 2015 we had a spectacular concert in Los Angeles featuring pop star Andy Grammer for a thousand people to stand up for human rights in Iran.”

“More than 50 journalists are in prison in Iran today. Hundreds of reporters, editors, photographers, bloggers and citizen journalists also suffer from routine harassment, surveillance and censorship.”
