Details: In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the publication of the groundbreaking book "Silent Spring" by Rachel Carson, the University of Iowa Sciences Library, Iowa Women's Archives, and the Office of Sustainability presents a screening of "A Sense of Wonder", starring Kaiulani Lee. "When pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson published "Silent Spring" in 1962, the backlash from her critics thrust her into the center of a political maelstrom. Despite her love of privacy, Carson's convictions about the risks posed by chemical pesticides forced her into a very public and controversial role. Using many of Miss Carson's own words, Kaiulani Lee embodies this extraordinary woman in a documentary-style film, which depicts Carson in the final year of her life. Struggling with cancer, Carson recounts with both humor and anger the attacks by the chemical industry, the government, and the press as she focuses her limited energy to get her message to Congress and the American people. Shot in HD by Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler, the 55-minute film is an intimate and poignant reflection of Carson's life as she emerges as America's most successful advocate for the natural world." - A Sense of Wonder - The Film (http://www.asenseofwonderfilm.com/)

Details: Awareness raising campaign about the persecution of Baha'is in Iran. Iranian Baha'is are systematically denied the right to a higher education in Iran. The Baha'i Insitute of Higher Education, established in 1987, offered an alternative educational venue where Baha'is could study, but the Iranian government targetted it, arresting instructors and seizing equipment, effectively shutting down the institute. The Education Under Fire campaign seeks to raise awareness about the persecution of Baha'is in Iran, specifically with regards to education. People can become involved by signing a virtual petition to send to the Iranian government. Prominent public citizens have also conducted a letter writing campaign to the Iranian government calling for an end to the persecution of Baha'is in Iran.
