Iranian-American Presence at the 2005 California Democratic Convention

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - April 12th, 2005 - Bay Area Iranian-American Democrats (BAIAD) today announced its representative will be attending this year's California Democratic Convention in Los Angeles.

"Democracy works through representation.  So far the Iranian-American community has had almost no representation in American politics," said BAIAD President Mehrdad Moayedzadeh.  He added: "This is a small but important step and we intend it to be the beginning of a new trend where every year we will have more and more Iranian-American Democrats representing our community at the California Democratic Party Convention."

The California Democratic Convention is held every year and is one of the major political events in the state of California.  This year the California Democratic Convention will be taking place from April 15-17, 2005 at the Los Angeles Convention Center
