According to the US Census 2000, San Jose and the Bay Area is home to the second largest population of Iranian-Americans in the nation! We also know that strength is in numbers. Thus, in this election year, let's speak in a unified voice (and act as a Unified Voter Block) to earn the clout we deserve. Join us at this celebration to show our numbers and our strength to ourselves and to other dignitaries.
