This summit is meant to empower Iranian-Americans to build better, stronger communities by coming together in one powerful event. Despite being leaders in our respective fields, the Iranian American community still has work to do in order to combat the Trump administration’s relentless stream of unjust policies targeted at immigrants.

The time to begin building our movement for 2018 and beyond is now.

We have put together two days of panels, keynote speakers, and trainings from experts within and outside the Iranian-American community. We want you to leave D.C with the tools you need to begin making an immediate political impact.

The panels and speakers will address issues that impact this community, including the Iran deal, sanctions, the Muslim Ban, and what it means to be a person of color in Trump’s America.

So what are you waiting for? The time to get off the sidelines and take matters into your hands is now. Get your ticket today and save your spot!
