The Parsi diaspora in North America has a long history and presence. The Zoroastrian Association of Greater New York [ ZAGNY ]has been one of the first Zarathushti community associations in North America.
In August 2012 they will host the XVI North American Zarathushti Congress in New York. A slew of events are planned as part of the pre-Congress program.
The idea is to start asking the questions and get the participants thinking about issues that shall be then discussed to find commonality and solutions during the four day Congress. The below linked video is the first in a series of 3 lectures that will deal with different facets of the 2012 NAZC theme "Zarathushti Existence in the Contemporary World"
