stand for justice

One Perfect Purpose painting by Charity Heart

Something important is happening around the world. More than ever before, people are rising up as one, of all races, cultures and faiths, to speak out for justice and equality for all. No matter who you are. Below is such a happening, to be held next month in the Denver, Colorado area of the United States.

“From Oppression to Opportunity”
A reflective evening
Hosted by the Baha’is of Douglas County-
Friday, June 3, 2011 7:15 PM
Candlewood Suites
10535 EL DIENTE CT., ENGLEWOOD, CO 80112
Emcee: Dr. Dwight Allen
Please join us for an evening to raise awareness of the unjust and illegal persecutions of peoples around the world, including the persecution and imprisonment of the Baha’is in Iran.

Brief talks by:

Dr. Dwight Allen
Ms. Soheila Songhurst
Mr. Matthew Weinberg
Musical performances by the Ribbons and Strings ensemble, Debonair String Duo.
The Baha’is of Metro Denver, and their friends, stand shoulder to shoulder with governments around the world, advocates for human rights and religious freedom, and many of the world’s leaders, especially our own U.S lawmakers who, on March 1st of this year introduced resolutions in the  U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, demanding the immediate release of imprisoned Baha’is held solely for their religious beliefs.
We invite you to join us as we also shine a light on social and economic programs that we believe will help extinguish injustice around the globe.
