Iran is a place where people live under the yoke of a theocracy that rules with an iron fist. In recent years, the news cycle has focused on Iran’s neighbors without giving regard to Iran itself. Only a few people know the hardships that Iranians live under every day. Fewer still know the fear that the government inflicts on its population. While there are good things about Iran itself, the opacity of the government and the society makes it difficult for the people to find a way to live in peace with themselves and with their neighbors. When people live in fear of merely voicing their opposition opinions, something in society and government needs to change. We are looking to support this change so that Iranians everywhere can live in peace, visit their families, and not worry about what the regime may do to other family members who had to remain behind.

The Organization of Iranian American Communities-U.S. seeks to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people in Iran. We hope to organize the Persian American community to advocate for a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear government in Iran. Our non-profit, Iranian community organization was founded in 1997. Grassroots members of the Iranian American culture and society hope to serve as a platform for Iranian Americans to work for human rights while standing in solidarity with the Iranian people.
