It's been more than a year since 7 leaders of the Baha'i religion were imprisoned in Iran. Now local followers of that faith are trying raise awareness, saying members of their religion are being persecuted. WFMZ's Joscelyn Moes has the story

As it has been more than a year that the 7 Baha'i leaders have been held in Evin Prison, without formal charges or access to their lawyer, Shirin Ebadi, it is important for us to inform our country and the word about their ordeal. We also need to remember the MANY other brave women, reformers, students, free-thinkers, ethnic minorities, and human rights activists that are being held in prison and persecuted in Iran. Regardless of faith or philosophy, our thoughts are with them during these most difficult times.
