Our rules of engagement are simple – we encourage building alliances and partnerships.
U.S. Azeris Network (USAN) wants to work with all U.S.-based Azerbaijani, Turkic, and other diaspora and community organizations, groups, societies, coalitions, networks, associations, and clubs. Please feel free to contact us to discuss the joint vision of the future.
The U.S. Azeris Network is making the first nation-wide attempt to bring all the Azerbaijani-American current and potential voters together, to educate them about the need for voting and thus voter registration, to engage them in the American political debate, to energize them to vote and be active on important issues facing the Azerbaijani-American community and the country at large, to link and unite the Azerbaijani-American voters to speak with one vigorous voice, to be heard in Washington D.C. and state capitals, and to be recognized as an influential voice on the issues pertaining to the Azerbaijani-American voters, particularly energy security, religious tolerance, racism, NATO, EU and WTO politics, humanitarian aid and technical assistance to the strategic ally nations, taxation, social security and healthcare.
As a relatively new group of “swing” or “undecided” voters, the up to 400,000 strong Azerbaijani-American community, concentrated primarily in the states of California, New York, New Jersey and Texas, together with other Turkic communities, such as the half-million strong Turkish-American voter block, along with Iranian-Americans of Azerbaijani Turkic heritage, and, Jewish-Americans (primarily Mountain Jewish) who came from Azerbaijan, presents a great opportunity as a new force in grassroots activism and voting in U.S. politics.
Through the auspices of the U.S. Azeris Network, the voice of the Azerbaijani-Americans will be unified and strengthened. USAN is the first nationwide grassroots organization uniting Azerbaijani-Americans, conducting successful fundraisers and being created by the grassroots, for the grassroots! Help us achieve this ambitious goal! We need more and more Azerbaijani-Americans involved in the process, and we need financial contributions to sustain this large-scale project.
