Turkish Cultural Center operates throughout New York and organizes trips, lectures, seminars, art exhibits, workshops, dinners, and conferences touching upon a broad category of topics all aimed at informing the public about Turkish Americans and issues important to all of us as a nation.
Turkish Cultural Center has and continues to organize many intercultural and interfaith programs and seminars bringing people from different walks of life together where we all learn to respect and appreciate each other for whom we are without trying to change or infringe on the other diminishing if not abolishing prejudices and false conceptions about each other.
Turkish Cultural Center serves all members of the community regardless of age, race, color, religion, creed, citizenship status, marital status, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, disability, veteran status or any other protected status under applicable law.
