OPEN TO EVERYONE
The Bahai faith embraces people from all backgrounds, seeking to eliminate
prejudices of all kinds and work for gender equality and social justice.
Latzer says one of the principle tenets of the faith is Unity in Diversity.
"In our communities, people from all different backgrounds with different
opinions have a place to come together and through our higher spiritual
nature, we find ways to work together and overcome our differences."
