Spread the word. Aside from broadcasting your own Norooz Challenge, please consider sharing one of the videos above and/or forwarding this message to others who are active on social media.

Participating in #LiveTogether elevates us beyond just the Iranian-American community. We are strongest when we stand together with our fellow Americans, including standing up for others in future Challenges such as Passover, Cinco de Mayo, and LGBT Pride.
