American Kurdish Information Network (AKIN)
The American Kurdish Information Network (AKIN) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization established in 1993. Its aim is to increase awareness about the Kurds. AKIN is comprised of Americans of Kurdish origin and recent Kurdish immigrants and refugees from all walks of life: entrepreneurs, blue- and white-collar workers, students, and American supporters. AKIN collects, translates, and disseminates information about the Kurds. It hopes to become a valuable resource center for policy makers, scholars, and students of the region.
