Thank You, Los Angeles!

Many thanks to all who attended NIAC’s LA Fundraiser with Nasim Pedrad on Wednesday, October 26, and helped make this NIAC’s most successful southern California fundraiser to date! We are grateful for the tremendous support you demonstrated toward peace, diplomacy, and human rights! 

An extra big thanks to our hosts, Fariba and Hassan Kheradmandan, for their incredible generosity and hospitality! And of course many thanks to our host committee, who are responsible for making this event a success: Firouzeh Afsharnia, Fereshteh Amin, Reza Amin, Michael Amin, Iraj Ershaghi, Farideh Estiri Lyons, Hossein Hosseini, and Ahmad Shams.  

For those who missed the event, here’s a quick recap: Nasim shared some heartwarming and of course hilarious remarks on her experience as an Iranian American comedian, and on why she supports diplomacy with Iran. We also learned a great deal from Dr. Ali-Akbar Mahdi, CSU Northridge Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, who shared his insights on the potential implications of a US-Iran deal.

Together we are playing a part in changing the course of US-Iran history.  Thank you for sharing your concerns and perspectives at the event, and know that we are taking steps in promoting a mutually beneficial nuclear deal between the US-Iran before the November 24 deadline that can help put an end to the harmful sanctions policy on Iran! If you were not able to attend, you can still make a difference by making a contribution to NIAC today
