ICON–Iranian Community of the Northeast–is an open network of Iranian emigres from diverse ethnic, religious, political, and professional backgrounds living in the American Northeast. We are drawn together through the common struggles that we find ourselves facing in our daily affairs. As an immigrant and minority community in the US, our roots and routes are both local and transnational. Our mission is to provide a platform through which we can communicate and address our collective needs and concerns both amongst ourselves, and also amongst the variety of peoples, spaces, and histories with which we are entangled.
Our vision is based on just, equitable, and accountable living–one that prioritizes humane and socially responsible treatment of all with whom we share our cities and our planet. Our aim is to build a resilient and vibrant community.
