We are being called to action.
The need for action on two fronts, internationally and nationally, is immediate.
Internationally, we are being called by the Universal House of Justice and our National Spiritual Assembly to arise in defense of the Baha'is in Iran. Facing fresh assaults daily on our beloved Faith, which have now spread to affect the lives of their children, the believers in Iran stand in need of your support.
Nationally, we are being called upon to play your indispensable part in winning the annual National Fund Goal. In a recent letter from the National Treasurer of the National Spiritual Assembly, the Treasurer shared that, "If each one of us does our part, then we, through a great spirit of universal participation, will realize the victory so needed at this time."
Now, if ever, is the time to heed these words from the Universal House of Justice - "Might it, then, not be reasonably expected that you, the youth and young adults living at such an extraordinary time, witnessing such stirring examples of the valor of your Iranian fellows, and exercising such freedom of movement, would sally forth, 'unrestrained as the wind,' into the field of Baha'i action?"**
Keep reading to see how we can enter the field of action.
