SHOWING MOVIE for the Baha'i Community of Park Ridge --- "Education Under Fire": A Documentary and Conversation

MOVIE for the Baha'i Community of Park Ridge
 
"Education Under Fire": A Documentary and Conversation A story of hope and persistence amid decades of repression, the 30-minute film "Education Under Fire" shows how authorities in Iran deny higher education to thousands of young people due to ideological or religious reasons — and how members of the Baha’i Faith, the country’s largest religious minority, strive to maintain an "underground university" to fill the need.
 
Join in a discussion of how Americans can help, with Glen Fullmer, communications director at the U.S. Baha’i National Center.
 
Sponsored by the Park Ridge Baha’i community.
