Currently, there are no formal, diplomatic relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States. This hasn’t always been the case, and the OIAC hopes that through peaceful, democratic change in Iran, the two countries can once again enjoy fruitful diplomatic relations in the future. We long for a free Iran with universal suffrage, freedom of the media, and a separation of church and state. We advocate for a future Iran that recognizes personal property rights, private investment, and one that upholds the universal declaration of human rights and eliminates all forms of discrimination.
Iranian Americans and the OIAC fight daily for democracy and regime change in Iran with a goal of providing a better tomorrow for our family and loved ones in Iran. The OIAC does not support foreign war, nor does our organization support U.S. appeasement of Iran.
Our goal is to seek a third way for dealing with Iran—one that supports the struggle of individual Iranians hoping to effect democratic change in Persia. We mobilize our network of Iranian-American communities in 40 states in the U.S. to engage in the civic process, educating locally and educating national policy makers and the media. Better American-Iranian relations can help bring more peace to the region.
We engage with optimism advocating for human rights and democracy for the citizens of Iran. Our foreign policy seeks a peaceful co-existence between Iran and the U.S. We seek international and regional peace and cooperation. We want the relationship between Iran and the U.S. to provide more opportunity for individuals in both countries while creating a better state of affairs.
