On Friday, June 21st at 12p, join KCRW and America Abroad
for an international town hall meeting on Iran. The discussion will
bring together experts, activists, Iranian diaspora communities, and
social media voices inside Iran for a 90 minute-long conversation on the
country, its people and their future.
NPR Broadcaster, Madeleine Brand, and BBC Persian Service anchorwoman
Pooneh Ghodoosi will co-host two panels – one in Los Angeles and one in
London, connected via Skype. Panelists will represent diverse elements
of Iranian society and culture including a Persian human rights activist
and a member of one of Iran's non-Persian ethnic minority communities. The L.A. panel will include Jimmy Delshad and Golnaz Esfandiari. Delshad is the former Mayor of Beverly Hills and the first Iranian American to hold public office in Beverly Hills. Esfandiari is the Senior Correspondent in RFE/RL's Central Newsroom and editor of the award winning Persian Letters blog.
addition to fielding questions and comments from the audiences in both
cities, Pooneh will be adding a steady stream of Persian-language Tweets
from inside Iran that reach us over the course of the program.
