Join me for this illuminating interview with Parivash Rohani, a Baha'i from Iran, who left her country fleeing religious persecution and now is an activist for social justice and freedom. Her words about the importance of standing up for what you believe in, working with other people and weaving humanity together in truth and love.
Parivash Rohani left Iran and fled to India in 1979 due to religious persecution. She arrived in the United States in 1986 as an immigrant. Currently she lives in Portland with her husband and children. Professionally, she is a ICU registered nurse. She has been involved with many humanitarian, environmental, and interfaith projects. Her involvement in MIPL and International human right campaign "Education Is Not A Crime" is due to her firm conviction that change happens organically at the grass roots level, and justice demands universal participation. Parivash believes it is our moral obligation to be involved in social action and participate in the prevalent discourse of society.
