Moji Agha

Moji Agha (Mojtaba Aghamohammadi) is an Iranian-American reformist Muslim sufi "monk" or dervish (with a vow of poverty and service) and a bilingual poet/writer--whose writing includes a book on how to quit smoking naturally. A "Chomskyan Activist" for 4 decades, he has had extensive academic, professional, and clinical backgrounds in psychology, cultural (and ecological) studies and conflict understanding and healing. Brother Moji's peace, justice, human rights, democracy, interfaith dialogue, and Mother Earth activism has been endorsed by legendary figures such as Noam Chomsky, Cornel West, and Charter for Compassion's Founder Karen Armstrong. His tireless "civility" activism includes founding non-profit "decolonization" projects like: Native/American Truth and Reconciliation (NATR) Initiative, Abraham's Peace Tent [see section 3], Islam as Nonviolence Education Series, Mossadegh Legacy Institute, Circles of Nonviolence/Community Collaboratives (Circles Movement of Movements) Initiative, International Institute to Study Climate Change in the Islamic World, and Universal Coalition for Interfaith and Intercultural Knowledge and Action. Since May 2013 he has traveled the U.S. (on a speaking tour) in his “fragile” 1997 car, the "nonviolence mobile" as a "peace pilgrim."
