A note from the Board of Directors

Establishing the CKCC was the first step. In order to achieve our goals, we all need to be united. With your participation only, we can have strong bonds and can remove any roadblocks away. We need and want every single member of our community to be a part of this effort. Building an organization among Kurdish Community in California has many challenges. However, we think that once we get the whole community together, we can overcome those challenges one by one.

We can build schools for our children where they can learn their mother language. We can offer classes to our youngsters where they can learn our dance. We can have celebrations to introduce the Kurdish Heritage. We can have festivals to gather Kurds and non-Kurds from a variety of backgrounds and across North America together. We can help reveal many aspects of Kurdish life such as Kurdish film, literature, music, history, language, dance, politics, society, current events, etc. We can have debates, panels, roundtables, workshops and trainings to discuss important issues and educate our youth.

Our goal is to encourage the involvement of Kurdish or non-Kurdish people while promoting the Kurdish heritage and culture. We hope to educate Kurds in California to better function, organize, inspire, and mobilize their own communities.

Now is the time to join together!
