“Civic participation shapes our lives in innumerable ways: it builds connections with our neighbors, it determines if our local school serves our needs and if the trash gets picked up on time, and it influences state and national policies. It is a muscle that needs to be encouraged and cultivated for all of us in a democratic society.

Encouraging young Iranian Americans to engage with their community will make for lifelong civic engagement and a stronger America.”
