Anni grew up in the Islamic Republic of Iran where as a woman, she faced many abuses and injustices, all of which were permitted by law. At the age of 13 she was sold by her father. Two years later, with help from her grandmother, she was smuggled out of Iran to Turkey where she lived in a refugee camp until eventually being granted asylum in the United States.
Anni will tell her story, educate the audience on life under Islamic law and the value of the freedoms we have here today.
