Parivash was one of five recipients of the Trailblazer award given by Empower the Immigrant Woman Conference in the spring of 2017. Trailblazers are Maine women with a multicultural background who inspire others through their character, service and leadership. (To become involved or make a nomination: www.empowerimmigrantwoman.org).
Parivash is dedicated to an international non-profit organization that raises awareness regarding Baha'i people in Iran that are denied higher education, and it is called Education is not a Crime. There are two documentary films that she shares and uses to promote conversation around injustice. The movies are "To Light a Candle" and "Changing the World, One Wall at a Time." She also points out that this October the global Baha'i community is celebrating the 200 birthday anniversary of Baha'u'llah, the prophet founder of the Baha'i faith.
Parivash is also dedicated to her family and to this community--making sure there is as much unity as possible everywhere.
