The simmering conflict between the governments of the United States and Iran threatens its citizens with another war in the Middle East. Before our nation once again chooses this disastrous path, it’s important for us to know more about the “enemy”. It’s time for us to put a face on the people of Iran. The “Dear Iran Project” (on Facebook) builds understanding and respect between Americans and Iranians. Pictures, articles, and commentary from the press are sent to the site to provide news that you may have missed. Your responses are welcome.
“Bridge of Hearts” founder Jes Richardson is on the move! He’s planning to build a bridge of peace and understanding between the United States and Iran. He’ll be traveling across America to give his “Dear Iran Project” presentations in as many homes, halls, and houses of worship as he can. He needs your ideas and contacts to schedule these presentations and he’s seeking venues such as schools, churches, synagogues, mosques, libraries, and house parties. Learn more from our Events page. To respond, please contact Jes at Contact Us.
Children and young people will be sending handcrafted greeting cards to Iranian students to facilitate Facebook friendships (parental permission required). The adult presentation will focus on the troubled history between the U.S. and Iran and how a grass roots movement in the United States could compel our government to pursue a path of diplomacy rather than sanctions and war. If you want to participate in creating bridges that might just shape our future, please come to our luncheon on March 17 or our fundraiser on May 18. For more details, click here: Events.
