Director's Welcome 

Welcome to the Pars Equality Center. 2015 has been an incredibly fulfilling year as we’ve marked the 5th anniversary of the organization, opened the Daryabari Iranian Community Center in San Jose, and continued to expand the full range of social and legal services available across our multiple locations in northern and southern California. All of these successes have been made possible through the continued community support and belief in the greater mission of Pars: to ensure the successful mainstreaming of recent Persian-speaking people into American life. It is our hope that our current initiatives and programming and collective efforts as we continue to plan the organization’s future together will make ease the challenges of this transition into a new life. Welcome to the community.
