Announcing our Endorsement of Parisa Dehghani-Tafti for Virginia’s Commonwealth Attorney of Arlington and the City of Falls Church

Parisa Dehghani-Tafti is an Iranian American committed to justice who is running for re-election as Arlington Commonwealth Attorney. NIAC Action was proud to endorse Parisa in 2019, and she has proven to be a strong ally and leader for justice. She has reflected her values through action during her time in office by staffing the only Conviction Review Unit in Virginia, establishing a new mental health docket, expanding drug court, reducing the jail population to its lowest in history, securing indictments and convictions in all serious crimes, creating a novel restorative justice program for young people, and helping to win more than $700,000 in criminal justice grants to Arlington and the City of Falls Church. 

We are proud to endorse her this cycle, and urge you to step up and make a difference by supporting and voting for her this June 20.
