On March 28th, the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy, and Conflict Resolution (CRDC), Federation of Zoroastrian Associations of North America (FEZANA), and National Iranian American Council (NIAC) held a shared panel and celebration in honor of the presence in Washington of the Cyrus Cylinder and its significance for the peaceful interaction of civilizations based on universal human rights and human dignity. We all gathered to celebrate and reflect together during the Jewish Passover, and immediately following Nowrouz, the Iranian New Year, demonstrating the peaceful interaction of two ancient civilizations united in their common devotion to the legacy of Cyrus the Great.
