Founded in early 2002, the
Council is a non-partisan, non-profit organization
dedicated to advancing the interests of the Iranian-American
Iranian-Americans have achieved extraordinary levels of professional and economic success in the United States, consistently ranking among the highest in most surveys of immigrant education and affluence.
From Wall Street to Main Street, from Silicon Valley to the Shenandoah Valley, the impact of Iranian-Americans on American economic life is undisputed.
Still, despite the Iranian-Americans' contribution to the engine of American economic growth, the Iranian-American impact on our civil society - on our politics, our media, our advocacy organizations, our social institutions - is a less impressive story.
That's where we come in. NIAC believes that Iranian-Americans have the ability to play a key role in American civil society with the same levels of success and professionalism that they have played in American economic, academic, technological and scientific life. Our job is to, through education, help Iranian-Americans to get more involved in US politics, media and civic life.
