ADC Names Amani Al-Khatahtbeh
as Media Relations Specialist

Washington, DC | | June 16, 2014 – The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is proud to announce Ms. Amani Al-Khatahtbeh to serve in the newly formed position of Media Relations Specialist. In her position, Al-Khatahtbeh will be responsible for the media outreach and representation of the ADC. She will be taking on the organization’s social media presence to expand the reach of its audience, revitalize engagement, and transform the organization’s impact through new media.

“The ADC is excited that Amani will be joining the team,” said Samer Khalaf, president of ADC. “We hope that her modern approach and experience in grassroots activism and social media will take the ADC media strategy into the 21st century.”

A Huffington Post blogger and Middle East analyst for Atlantic Council, Al-Khatahtbeh’s editorial work as the former opinions editor of The Daily Targum has been awarded the regional Mark of Excellence Award from the Society of Professional Journalists.  She was a student organizer and media representative of the #NoRice campaign, a series of protests at Rutgers University that caused former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to back out of her 2014 commencement speech.

“I am very happy to join an organization that is needed in our American civil society now more than ever,” Al-Khatahtbeh said. “It is my goal to ensure that my new position will forcefully bring the Arab woman’s voice to the table, and ensure that their voices, along with the voices of the youth, are heard.” 

Al-Khatahtbeh is the founding editor-in-chief of, a blog that empowers Muslim women living in Western societies, for which she was honored in a New Jersey state resolution as a top community service pioneer in her state.

“We must continue to work together in taking the ADC to the next level,” Al-Khatahtbeh said, “not only to create a powerful impact for Arab-Americans across the nation, but also to set a precedent for the civil and human rights to which all marginalized communities are entitled.”
