Ayyam-i-Ha is a Baha’i festival that is joyously celebrated in countries and territories all over the world. It is a time of hospitality, generosity, and caring for the needy. This year Ayyam-i-Ha runs from February 26-29.
In this talk, produced by Bahaiteachings.org, inner-city Chicago activist leader Syda Segovia Taylor shares how she lost four of her students to gun violence and in this riveting talk, she organizes for a path toward healing. To heal the illnesses of her community, Taylor discusses how she brought a range of concerned organizations together to address racism, violence and mental health, applying the Baha’i teachings to capacity-building for individuals, organizations and institutions in her neighborhood.
