Meet PAAIA in Florida

In February, PAAIA will be visiting Orlando and Miami to meet and greet the
local Iranian American community. These events will give our community members
in the area a chance to learn more about PAAIA and the vision that it
represents, as well as some of PAAIA's accomplishments and current projects.
This will also be an opportunity for local community members to provide us with
their feedback, have their questions about PAAIA answered, and learn how they
can be involved with our organization. PAAIA staff, including Babak Hoghooghi,
its Executive Director, Rudi Bakhtiar, PAAIA's Director of Public Relations and
former primetime anchor at CNN, and Dr. Niaz Kasravi, PAAIA's Director of

PAAIA is a 501(c)(4) "civic/social welfare organization" that is permitted by
law to engage in issue advocacy and lobbying activities. As a social welfare
organization, PAAIA can and should ideally have an affiliated political action

affiliated PAC will allow the organization to get directly involved in elections
at the state and national levels by providing contributions to candidates
running for public office.
