People to People in Iran

Citizen diplomats, Priscilla Fairbank, Jonathan Hill and Barbara Spring will share visuals and experiences from their December 2007 tour in Iran:

Thursday, February 7 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 pm at the Bethlehem Public Library, 451 Delaware Ave, Delmar, and on March 5 at the Sanctuary for Independent Media, 3361 6th Avenue in Troy, with potluck dinner, including Iranian goodies, at 6:00 p.m., and the presentation at 7:00pm.

The group traveled with Fellowship for Reconciliation to meet with ordinary people of all ages: casual bazaar shoppers, high school and college students, children and parents on the street or in public parks, clerics in mosques. They were in Iran with the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran was released in the U.S. which confirmed that Iran had abandoned it’s nuclear weapons program.
