Education Under Fire is a campaign that revolves around the human rights violations in Iran regarding the denial of education.

In Iran, members of the Bah??'?? Faith - a faith with a world-embracing vision based upon the fundamental spiritual truth that all of humanity is one family - are not only banned from attending post-secondary accredited institutions, but are also being stripped of their individual rights to educate themselves outside of accredited institutions.This event will consist of a screening of a 30 minute documentary as well as a discussion among those present about steps our community can do to support the freedom of education around the world.
