This collaborative event between Esha's friend and family, CSUN students and the Campaign members was sponsored and managed by one of Esha's friends, herself a Campaign member. Thanks to two months of intense work, the group was able to put together an impressive and well-managed program and in so doing was able to pay a rich tribute to their friend Esha in the form of a peaceful night of art and music, highly appropriate since Esha herself is both an artist and a musician
A harmonious blend of musical performances and speeches, the event informed attendees about Esha's bright character and various activities, as well as the obstacles faced by the women's rights movement in Iran, all the while relaxing and soothing the souls of those present

This blog reflects news about Esha Momeni, the Iranian American artist, CSUN student, and Iranian women's rights advocate (of the One Million Signatures Campaign), who was arrested on Oct 15th in Tehran while visiting Iran and working on her Master's thesis project.
Esha was released on an excessive bail ($200,000, deed to her parent’s house) after 20 days in solitary confinement, and is currently accused of engaging in "propaganda against the state". Her passport has been retained by the authorities therefore she is unable to leave the country despite her desire to come back to California.
