Washington, DC – Last month, NUFDI’s team traveled to Fresno, California as a part of its nationwide roadshow to meet with the Iranian-American community across the country. After starting the week prior in New York with the Iranian-American Jewish and artistic community, the roadshow continued in Fresno in an endeavor to spread NUFDI’s mission across the country. In Fresno, Policy Director Cameron Khansarinia, President Dr. Saeed Ganji, Chairman Shahpar Razmzan and multiple members of the Advisory Council met with leaders across the community including the chief of police, the mayor, and dozens of influential Iranian-Americans. These meetings focused on NUFDI’s recent accomplishments and future plans and the role the Iranian-American community can play in Washington, DC.
The team also organized a town hall of more than 100 members of the Fresno Iranian-American community and answered questions on NUFDI’s values, goals, mission, and activities. The interest generated, particularly among the younger generation of Iranian-Americans, was an exciting step forward in building NUFDI’s grassroots relationships across the Iranian-American community.
The NUFDI team looks forward to continuing these efforts in more parts of the country and hearing the interests and concerns of our community, and bringing those to Washington.
