Our first conversation with Amb. Johnson Cook was held last year, on September 20, 2011 at the Baha’i UN office.

Amb. Johnson Cook and her colleague, Nasreen I. Badat, answered questions and listened with interest to RNGO concerns regarding the role of her office, which is under the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, in encouraging religious freedom across the globe.
