Inspiring story of resilience

Social Work in Action (SWA) is sponsoring a screening of Education Under Fire, a documentary of the systematic denial of the right to higher education of the Baha'i people of Iran.  

"One of the most powerful human documentaries I have ever seen, Education Under Fire is sure to galvanize viewers who will be exposed to an outrage that until now has received little attention -- the systematic denial of an entire religious community of the right to pursue higher education in their own country."

~ Elise Auerbach, Iran specialist for Amnesty International U.S.A.

The documentary runs for 30 minutes, followed by a Q and A panel with individuals who have personal experience with Iran's policies and the Baha'i faith. Food will be provided, and attendance is free.
