Wednesday, Jan 29, 2014 ,
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
- Chicago, IL, United States


(Teerdad) Amir Normandi is the founder and coordinator of the Chicago Nowruz Parade (CNP). Through his campaign, the city council has established the last Saturday of March as the day of the Chicago Nowruz Parade. In addition, he has put concerted efforts towards obtaining an official declaration in Illinois that would establish the first day of Farvardin as a day to recognize the traditional heritage of Iranians since 1990. This led to the establishment of the first official declaration of Nowruz in the US in 1996, signed by Republican Governor Jim Edgar.
