The event is one of several as Yakima Baha’is join Baha’is throughout the world in commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, founder of the Bahá’í Faith.
Driver, a longtime resident of Moscow, is a Bahá’í and a musician. With his late wife Connie he received the 2009 Latah County Human Rights Task Force Rosa Parks Human Rights Achievement Award. Driver is known throughout the community for his work with Finding the Center Human Rights Conference, the Moscow Human Rights Commission, and the Northwest Coalition for Human Rights.
“I have always enjoyed Bob Dylan’s music,” Driver said, “and find his ‘Times they are a’changin’ as relevant today as it was in 1964.”
Driver will speak about global events, and how, in the face of what appears to be overwhelming chaos, a new world order of peace and unity is destined to emerge. He will emphasize what we can do in our communities, as individuals and institutions, to move past differences and to contribute to a unified global community.
