American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee

The 2014 National Convention Program

ADC is proud to introduce the program for the 34th Annual National Convention.  Civil rights are the focus of this year’s convention; “It takes a Community” is the theme.  It truly does take a community of engaged members to protect our civil rights and preserve our cultural heritage.  ADC invites you join the Arab American community in commemorating the 50th Anniverary of the Civil Rights Act on June 12-15 at the 2014 National Convention.
