We invite you once again to join the CNP. We ask for your support in the spirit of Nowruz, which means that we are asking for your presence, your joy, your warmth and your solidarity.
We ask that you bring your family and friends to our event, that you invite and educate your neighbors about Nowruz, and we ask that you make Nowruz a part of the future of our children in America as it is about their heritage.
