Education is Not a Crime – Live in Los Angeles


This week I am traveling through Southern California. I flew into San Diego last week and have made my way up to Los Angeles to perform this Friday February 27th (8pm) at a very special event called ‘Education is Not a Crime – A Night of Music & Stories‘.

The event will take place at LA’s beautiful Theatre-at-Ace-Hotel on Broadway, and is part of the ‘Education is Not a Crime’ Campaign launched last year by Canadian-Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari (whose experience as a prisoner in Iran was the subject of Jon Stewart’s 2014 movie Rosewater) to raise global awareness about the increasing persecution of Iran’s largest religious minority, the Bahá’í community, whose members are prohibited from studying or teaching at university.

I’ll be sharing the stage with many other artists, actors, activists and journalists who are voicing their concerns about this issue and whose hope is that, as global awareness of this problem increases, the government of Iran will realise the necessity of allowing all their citizens, of whatever race or religion, to receive an education, to pursue their aspirations, and to contribute to society.

Hope to see you on Friday at Ace Hotel, LA – for A Night of Music and Stories!
