Members

If you've have been thinking about joining NIAC, there’s never been a better time than right now. NIAC has given the Iranian-American community a powerful voice for community, democracy and universal rights.

We offer a variety of membership levels to meet your budget as well as convenient ways to make your donation. If you have questions about becoming a donor, please call or e-mail us. Donations are tax deductible.

NIAC strives to serve its members in many ways, because our members are our strength. So whether it's making sure your voice is heard in Washington, meeting your members of Congress, or providing you the inside scoop on what's happening in Washington, NIAC is here to serve you.


How We Serve You

Making Your Voice Heard

NIAC regularly polls its members on the issues of concern to the Iranian-American community. Based on our last membership survey, NIAC decided to continue to oppose war, continue to oppose broad sanctions, seek to lift sanctions that inhibit people-to-people communications and explore targeted sanctions that don't affect the general population; and advocate for human rights to be included in any US-Iran diplomacy.

After we heard your opinions, we started working to ensure your voice was heard by policymakers. And we've had a remarkable amount of success:

  • Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) introduced the Stand with the Iranian People Act, which would change the course on decades of failed US policies that have hurt the Iranian people and inadvertently contributed to their repression.
  • Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) introduced the Iranian Digital Empowerment Act, which has helped enable average Iranian citizens to access the most powerful tool available for promoting democracy and civil society in Iran: information.
  • The US Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control answered NIAC's call to waive counterproductive sanctions that stifled Iranians' access to Internet communication technology.
  • NIAC President Trita Parsi testified before the House of Representatives' Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission on the human rights situation in Iran to urge lawmakers to place a greater emphasis on the human rights issue in dealing with Iran.
Connecting with Your Elected Officials

Meet your elected officials

A NIAC Member meeting Rep. Tom Price

Your elected officials in Washington have an obligation to represent you.  At the same time, every American has a responsibility to get involved and to let elected officials know what they think about the issues -- and that’s where NIAC comes in.

We can help you voice your concerns to officials in Washington.  Have an issue you want to discuss with your representatives? NIAC is happy to offer you our assistance -- we can set up a meeting between you and your member of Congress, or give you tips on how to write an effective letter to make your voice heard.   

This is a service we are pleased to provide our members, so join NIAC today to learn how you can benefit from this unique experience!
