Dear Family and Friends,
The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA), the new organization that I have been the Executive Director of and helping to build since August, was publicly launched late yesterday. PAAIA’s launch was also covered in an article in the Saturday edition of the Washington Post.
As many of you know, I truly and passionately believe in the importance of this cause and am convinced that PAAIA represents a uniquely promising opportunity for us to make a meaningful and positive difference for all Iranian Americans and our children.
However, doing so will simply not be possible without your help. To represent a true voice for our community and for us to be taken seriously in policy and political circles, we must build a national grassroots organization with a broad membership base of thousands, if not tens of thousands.
To that end, I invite you to take some time to visit and review PAAIA’s website (www.paaia.org), to reach out to me with any comments or questions you may have, to spread the word about PAAIA, and to become a member of PAAIA and help recruit other members. Please be reminded that while we appreciate larger donations, PAAIA’s membership dues start at the nominal amount of $75 ($25 for students and senior citizens).
I am extremely pleased and proud of PAAIA’s progress to date in laying the foundation for an effective and influential voice for the Iranian American community. Yet, the path we have embarked upon to fully empower our community will undoubtedly be long and challenging. We at PAAIA are confident that with your support and involvement we will succeed in building an organization that truly represents and benefits Iranian Americans and that our community will take pride in. I sincerely hope to be able to count on your active involvement and support in this endeavor.
