Established in December of 2003, MARTI is a non-profit and non politically affiliated organization supported by local Turkish American community.


Our organization is dedicated to addressing the social and cultural needs of Turkish-Americans and all other Turkic people living in or around Maryland.


We serve the local community by organizing field trips, picnics, dinners, social gatherings, art & crafts exhibitions, language and tutoring classes.

Special  Events

Dialogue Events

We promote intercultural and interfaith dialogue & friendship through educational and cultural activities. We believe that we can build stronger bridges within our community if we get to know one another. In addition to legislative receptions, we organize dialogue dinners, Noah’s Pudding gatherings, iftar dinners during the holy month of Ramadan and intercultural study trips.
