Norooz is the most enduring Persian tradition! It’s shared by people of many beliefs, ethnicities and religions!

As Iranian-Americans, we celebrate Norooz in the United States and spread good spring cheer to our neighborhoods, schools and the community at large.

There are more than 4,500 colleges and universities in the U.S.  Some house Persian student associations that host lectures, convene meetings and share Persian culture through events and concerts.

HAND Foundation intends to strengthen these organization by supporting their efforts to reach out to populations outside of the Persian community.

Our hope is that Norooz becomes a mainstream American tradition where, together, we celebrate the beginning of spring and renewal of life on earth!
