Hill Briefing & Panel Discussion on Iran

  • 122 Cannon House Office Building (map)

The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA), in conjunction with Congressman Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA/11th) and Congressman Francis Rooney (R-FL/19th), cordially invite you to attend a congressional briefing and panel discussion on U.S. policy toward Iran.

 Using the poll results of our 2018 National Public Opinion Survey of Iranian Americans, PAAIA will facilitate a discussion designed to inform policymakers on the views of their Iranian American constituents relating to U.S.- Iran relations and their hopes for a democratic Iran.  

 Following the presentation of the survey findings, a panel of Iran experts will be on hand to discuss the impact of U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal, efficacy of current U.S. strategy toward Iran, internal political dynamics in Iran (post 2017 protests), as well as the current human rights situation in Iran.
