Iranian American Rights Project

For far too long, Iranian Americans have been subject to alienation and discriminatory policies here at home in the United States – from persistent negative portrayals of Iranians in American popular culture, to bigoted statements about us from our elected officials, to laws that unjustly target Iranian Americans because of our country of heritage. NIAC’s Iranian-American Rights Project aims to research and document demonization and discrimination and to reverse the policies and practices that undermine our community’s rights.
