Three cases of Coronavirus have been confirmed in Maryland. Maryland Governor Hogan declares state of emergencies. Here are some useful links for your information:
The impact of the coronavirus outbreak worldwide and especially in Iran is evident.
It’s difficult to predict the wider impact the coronavirus will have in the weeks to come. Nonetheless, we must take into consideration the recommendations of the WHO (World Health Organization) and CDC (U.S. Center for Disease Control). In addition, we consider the recommendations of these organizations in light of the likelihood that members of our community may have recently traveled to places of higher risk for the virus.
Consequently, it is with great regret and the utmost regard for safety of our Children and community members, that ICEC has an obligation to cancel the upcoming Nowruz Program scheduled for March 7, 2020.
We wish to thank all Organizers, Parents, extracurricular activities leaders,
Volunteers, Teachers, Students, and Vendors for their outstanding efforts and collaboration in preparation of our Nowruz Program.
Happy and healthy Nowruz to all,

Yosi Badie graduated cum laude from The University of Maryland with a major in Economics and Government & Politics, and a minor in Mathematics. As a daughter of Iranian immigrants, she served as the President of the Iranian Students’ Foundation, where she focused on building community amongst fellow Iranian-American students and connecting to the greater Iranian community.
Upon graduation, Yosi worked as a business development associate at Bloomberg. With the refugee crisis reaching its peak during this time, she decided to leave the corporate world to actively support communities fleeing their homes in search of safety. She moved to Thessaloniki, Greece to volunteer for Emergency Response Centre International, a Greek NGO.
There, she managed Elpida Refugee Camp, working alongside Syrian and Iraqi residents to improve the conditions of the camp and to transform it into a dignified community space.
After 7 months in Greece, Yosi returned stateside to run the Washington D.C. branch of The Petey Greene Program, where she supported the academic achievement of incarcerated people in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia by bringing university students to tutor GED students inside prisons and jails. Yosi worked to expand access to education on the inside and worked
alongside those incarcerated to establish the program at the Washington, D.C. Jail.
Yosi will be starting law school in the Fall at NYU as a Root-Tilden-Kern public interest scholar. At NYU, Yosi hopes to expand her capacity to not only mitigate the experience of oppression faced by refugees, immigrants, incarcerated individuals, and other marginalized communities, but to also leverage her education to dismantle these systems of oppression.
