Persia: a land of poets, thinkers, and scientists. A place where the world’s first human rights declaration was made. A rich homeland of civilization and history. The strength of our culture has given us reason for pride.
More than 5 decades have passed since our most recent wave of migration to this land. Today as the world becomes increasingly globalized, thousands of Iranians continue to migrate to different parts of the world, yet remain culturally connected to our homeland. During this era, we have become an established community in the United States, yet we yearn the culture of our ancestors and instill it in the hearts and minds of generations to come.
ICCOC encourages and facilitates programs contributing to the social, cultural, educational and recreational advancement and enrichment of the community. It is a gathering space where Iranians, Iranian descendants, and all interested in or related to Persian culture can come together to celebrate traditional cultural festivals such as Mehregan, Nowruz and Yalda, as well as attend book readings, art exhibitions, workshops, classes, and ceremonies!
