Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to meet with Turkish and Muslim American community leaders, advocates in NYC
The Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC) will host Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for a meeting with Turkish American and Muslim American community leaders and advocates at the Marriott Marquis in New York City on September 21, 2017.
TASC organized a panel discussion with the leaders of Kadin ve Demokrasi Dernegi (KADEM) and Maarif Foundation within the context of March 8 International Women’s Day (IWD). The event took place at New York Hilton Midtown hotel on March 17, 2017.
TASC Board member Nevin Bakir organized two important programs in DC and in NY about the FETO movement, featuring the security policies expert and writer Mete Yarar. The DC program was entitled “July 15 Coup Attempt and its Effects on Turkey” took place at the National Press Club. Yarar stressed the fact that the coup attempt was NOT a “one day” event. The terror movement did their groundwork for years by infiltrating the infrastructure of the country.
Our focus is on public education and advocacy programs that support Turkish American civic empowerment and strong United States – Turkey relations. TASC includes Turkish American community leaders, many of whom are also leaders in other Turkish American organizations.
Individual and group participation in TASC is voluntary. TASC decisions do not bind other organizations in which TASC officers and directors may be active, unless such organizations agree to participate in a TASC program.
TASC’s mission is to promote and amplify a unified Turkish American voice on issues that affect the Turkish American community and Unites States – Turkish relations. TASC pools the resources of participating organizations for the common interests of the community. TASC coordinates the complementary capabilities of participating organizations.
TASC’s vision of Turkish American civic empowerment is based on solidarity within diversity, and open collaboration among community leaders and volunteers in support of our common interests.
