PeaceJam VISTA Pantea Beigi
has a lot of reasons to be interested in what's happening in Iran right now - having family over there is a major one of them. She was born in Iran and moved to the USA in her teens, where she graduated college and has worked in many fields, two of which are Journalism and PeaceJam. Now she has been asked to speak as a guest on several news shows and I will try to keep track of all of her appearances, upcoming and past, in this post. She is in close contact with PeaceJam Board Member and Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi
, working with her to help the Iranians who are hurting.
You can get more information about what's going on and join the discussion on our Message Boards in this thread

Ways to Help
Pani just alerted me that there are GREEN “Where’s My Vote?” Wristbands
available to show solidarity with the Iranian people in their struggle for social justice and freedom. All proceeds will come here to the PeaceJam Foundation
, where people like Pani work tirelessly to help the cause of the youth in Iran.
Hold the Carbon
is producing these wrist bands and they are a green-tech company which focuses on creating green products for consumers. The wristband is 100% eco-friendly. They are made from 100% recycled silicone and contain no lead or latex.
We are extremely happy to partner with Hold the Carbon and hope to help spread the word about these wrist bands. Go get yours here
