Program areas at NIAC

1.Advancing Peace & Diplomacy NIAC mobilized the pro-diplomacy community and worked with a coalition of foreign policy experts offering recommendations to de-escalate tensions. NIAC also challenged Trumps use of Iran sanctions that deliberately target humanitarian trade and inhibit Iranians access to the Internet, via Congressional briefings and legislative efforts.2.Securing Equitable Immigration Policies NIAC secured the first ever Congressional oversight hearing on the Muslim ban and secured an Iranian-American witness to testify at the hearing about the bans impact on our community. 3.Protecting Civil Rights NIAC petitioned the Department of Treasury for a formal rule change to license Americans to operate bank accounts from Iran, which could effectively end the discriminatory actions faced by our community. NIAC also called on Bank of America to halt its practice of shutting the accounts of individuals of Iranian national origin or heritage and underscoring that sanctions do not obligate financial institutions to close the bank accounts of individuals ordinarily resident in the United States. NIAC also continued to demand answers around the tragic death of Bijan Ghaisar by working with a coalition of Iranian-American organizations to urge accountability from the U.S. Park Police, Department of Justice, and FBI surrounding details of the investigation.
