Celebration of Second anniversary of the One Million Signatures Campaign for equality

In celebration of the second anniversary of the One Million Signatures Campaign for equality, we have planned a day of art and self-expression and we want you to be a part of it. We are setting up a large canvas in front of the Iranian grocery store Wholesome Choice in Irvine and we are inviting everyone to imagine a world without discrimination and to paint or write their messages for women's rights activists in Iran. Come spend 20 minutes of your Saturday with us and think about your role in building a better community and a better world. We will be there on Saturday August 23rd from 11 AM to 9 PM and you can stop by any time you want.

We will also have a face-painting station for children and also a listening station (Istgahe dard-o-del) where we can listen to and record your real life stories and experiences (whether they are stories of difficulties caused by inequality or stories of strong women in your life who have inspired you- we are ready to listen).

Come visit us on your way to the store, or join us for some tea and a few brushstrokes :) We can work together and take another step toward a more just and equal society both in Iran and in Southern California.
Here is the address:
Wholesome Choice Market
18040 Culver Drive
Irvine, CA, 92612

Please feel free to forward this invitation to your friends.

We are students and professionals who have formed a local grassroots branch of this campaign in California. We do not pursue any political goals and are not formed around any ideology.
