The leading source of credible information about the Iranian American community, PAAIA serves as an educator for both U.S. policymakers and the American public about issues that are important to the Iranian American community. We do this by writing various articles about remarkable Iranian Americans who are excelling in their respective fields or making significant contributions to society. We also write summaries of educational events that we host and interview prominent Iranian Americans about their success, goals, and the impact of their heritage. Finally, we use our annual surveys to educate the public about the demographics, goals, hopes, concerns, and needs of Iranian Americans.
