As part of our efforts to keep you informed about what is going on in the nation’s Capitol, I will regularly share with you a listing of upcoming events relating to issues that matter to our community. Even if you are not in DC and can not attend it is always good to stay in touch with the various policy panels, conferences, and speeches that affect the Iranian-American community.

Below is a list of events for the month of December that pertain to Iran issues. Most of these events will be covered by NIAC staff members and who will publish reports on our website and in our weekly e-bulletin (to sign up follow the link and look on the top left panel on the website).

Note that due to staff constraints and lack of relevance, some events do not receive covereage. If you are aware of other relevant events in DC not mentioned in our list, please let me know in the comment section below.
