Darius Shahinfar for Congres
Dear Iranian-Americans and friends,
Within the past several decades, we the Iranian-Americans have made great strides to see our duly earned stature recognized with respect to our cultural identify and substantive contributions in the multiethnic Promised Land: the U.S. of A. Despite the lingering challenges faced by our community in Diaspora, We have, nonetheless, taken much pride to enjoy, cherish and promote our historically rich Iranian culture, heritage and glories, while paving the path to passing on the torch to our next generations.
The Iranian-Americans have indeed sustained many grassroots organizations and associations committed to enriching us with a myriad of cultural events in the areas of Iranian music, poetry, literature, arts, etc. We have also been fairly successful in advocating for our civil and constitutional rights, seeking social justice and fighting against stereotyping and discriminations. Many of these organizations are now actively engaged in discussing issues of global dimensions such as the human rights and social awareness.
More specifically, the Iranian-American Community is increasingly fortunate to benefit from the wise foresights of several non-partisan political action committees, which provide us with objective information on the political process and the candidates running for national and regional offices, so that we exercise our voting franchise well-informed. That said however, it is the latter endeavor of full empowerment and participation in the American political process - what we call, "exploring and conquering the ultimate frontier"-that requires an all out grassroots engagement and investment.
Dear Iranian-Americans, we believe the time has arrived and we are well prepared.....
We are well prepared to identify and promote truly qualified Iranian-American Congressmen and Senators to serve this great Nation with distinctions.
To fulfill this noble dream we should support and promote the Iranian-Americans, who have sincere and genuine political aspirations, prior acumens, and a vision for the country as a whole.
Darius Shahinfar (www.DariusForCongress.com ) who is running for congress as a Democrat from the 21st District in Albany NY exemplifies a second generation Iranian-Americans, deserving our support. He is a sincere and genuine patriotic American with a clear plan to help steer our nation in the right direction.
We invite you to attend a fund raising event for Darius at the House of Manijeh and Farhad Talebian in Long Island, New York on Sunday June 1st. 2008 from 12:00 Noon to 5: 00 pm.
It will be an informal and causal gathering with foods, drinks, and lots of fun. Darius and his team will mingle in the crowd to chat with, and respond to our input. Please come and meet Darius, and be an integral player in the historical event of shaping our community for the ultimate frontier.
