WASHINGTON, August 19, 2004 - As a result of the Iranian American Political Action Committee's (IAPAC) educational outreach efforts on Capitol Hill, Congressman Marty Meehan (D-5th/MA) will be hosting an Immigration Forum on the issues and realities facing the Iranian community. The conference will be held from 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM at Suffolk University Law School in Boston on September 1, 2004, where we will discuss key immigration issues that are of concern to the Iranian American community of Greater Boston.

The Iranian American Political Action Committee is a registered bi-partisan federal political committee that contributes to candidates for federal office who are attuned to the domestic needs of the Iranian American community. IAPAC focuses exclusively on domestic policy issues such as civil rights and civil liberties, and encourages Iranian Americans to actively participate in the electoral process, to vote and run for political office.
