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.
Rising Generations: Weaving a New Tapestry of Community Life is a short film by Kyle Schmalenberg in collaboration with the Baha’i International Community. The video explores themes such as the period of youth, service to others, and community life and it was made to accompany a recent statement by the Baha’i International Community by the same name.
If you’d like to read the statement in full, you can find it on the official website of the Baha’i International Community: http://bit.ly/2DYscMI
