The Persian holiday Nowruz نوروز (“new day”) is an ancient holiday celebrated on the first day of spring to welcome in the new year. This year, Nowruz is on March 21st, 2018.
This holiday presents an opportunity to remember courageous prisoners of conscience in Iran, write letters on their behalf, and send Nowruz greetings to them or to their families. You are invited to host a Nowruz event and send cards with simple Nowruz greetings such as “Nowruz mobarak” نوروز مبارک
This is a great opportunity to join efforts with local diaspora groups and celebrate Nowruz with a human rights twist.
