About Pars Equality Center

Pars Equality Center is a community-based social and legal services organization. Pars' mission is to act as a catalyst for the social, cultural and economic integration of Iranian-Americans, and other Persian speaking communities, into mainstream American society.


Pars Equality Center is a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit dedicated to helping all members of the Iranian-American community and other Persian-speaking countries realize their full potential as informed, self-reliant, and responsible members of American society. The organization believes that learning and teaching the rights and responsibilities of citizenship in a democracy as well as the rules and rewards of entrepreneurship are the necessary ingredients for success as a community.

Pars Equality Center achieves its mission primarily by providing extensive social and legal services. The Persian-speaking staff advocates for families and individuals in need, with a strong focus on refugees, asylum seekers, and those newcomers living in poverty.
