June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
This short video called “Is the Way We Communicate Working?” is produced by the UK Baha’i Office of Public Affairs. This animation explores the way we discuss things as a society, considering how we reached our current context and how we might move forward from adversarial frameworks to something more collaborative. It offers consultation as a model to help us find solutions together, as a collective.
