Emily Blout and Sara Shokravi covered the DNC for NIAC all week from Denver, but it was Sima Sarrafan who represented the Iranian American community on the floor of the convention as a DNC delegate from Washington State.  Ms. Sarrafan represents the newly invigorated interest in political participation here the United States as a new generation of Iranian Americans lose the anachrostic fears of ‘politics’ that has long defined our community.
Sima was also interviewed on Charlie Rose’s show on August 28th.  Go to minute 23:00 to listen to her interview about her experience as Obama’s classmate at Harvard Law School.   Our community should commend this type of political involvement irrelevant of the political party.
