This video from the Baha’i World News Service (BWNS) describes how the Baha’is of Australia embarked on a two-year project to explore how a society with diverse views on history, culture, and values—some seemingly at odds with each other—can forge a common identity that transcends differences and does not privilege some groups or diminish the worth of others.
