About Assyrian American National Coalition
Assyrian American National Coalition Assyrian American National Coalition The Assyrian American National Coalition is a grassroots advocacy and lobbying organization dedicated to exercising our rights as citizens to petition our elected officials to promote the security and preservation of the larger Assyrian community. AANC is policy driven and will advocate for specific action by community mobilization coordinated with direct lobbying of elected officials. We are independent of all political groups-Assyrian and American-and have no religious affiliation. We recognize that the many identities and confessions, such as Chaldean and Syriac, are unified in one nation: Assyrian. As a nonprofit, we are supported strictly by donations of individuals and organizations, Assyrian and otherwise, who simply agree with the goal to promote the security and preservation of the Assyrian people. Our mission is to promote the security and preservation of the entire Assyrian community, including Chaldeans and Syriacs, by exercising our rights as citizens to petition our elected officials. The history and needs of the Assyrian community have been poorly understood by leaders in the United States. We aim to organize the greater Assyrian community in the United States, including Chaldeans and Syriacs, to advocate directly, forcefully, and effectively on behalf of the Assyrian people. We believe Assyrians in the American Assyrian diaspora, if united and organized, have the potential to deliver a brighter future for the Assyrian people. With conscious, deliberate action, we will realize our goals, if not for ourselves, then for our childen and our children's children.
