We accomplish our mission through expert research and analysis, civic and policy education, and community building. Since its inception in 2002, NIAC has given the Iranian-American community a powerful voice. NIAC's sister organization, NIAC Action, was formed in 2015 to ensure our community had the tools to secure peace and to advance the priorities of the Iranian-American community.
