International Mother Language Day (IMLD) is a worldwide annual observance held on 21 February to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and promote multilingualism. First announced by UNESCO on 17 November 1999, it was formally recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in a resolution establishing 2008 as the International Year of Languages.
This Event is also held in UNT and has been supported either by Persian Community in Denton and UNT and also by IRSA.
This year it has been performed by Nastran Barhemmati the IRSA president.
Also, it has been helped by our community members Ali Montazeri and other friends.
