The 37th ADC National Convention on Sept. 22-24th commenced with great commitment and excitement. We at ADC were pleased to see Arab-Americans from around the country join us in Washington, D.C. for three days devoted to celebrating our culture and heritage, and acquiring invaluable knowledge and skill to better our community through civic engagement and activism.
We heard from inspiring Arab-Americans running for Congress, learned about the history of Little Syria in New York, and discussed effective ways to support Palestine, and much, much more! And like every ADC Convention, there was plenty of food and fun at our luncheons, receptions, and gala!
We remembered Jack Shaheen and dedicated ourselves to continuing his pioneering public service. Along with other awardees, it was our honor to bestow the Jack Shaheen Scholarship to Arab-American students.
As one of the largest gatherings of Arab-Americans in our nation’s capital, every Convention requires months of planning and a significant budget. For 37 years, it has been our privilege to continue the tradition, and we need your help as we start planning the 38th National Convention.
Please donate generously today. Every donation, no matter how small, will go a long way toward helping us bring even more speakers, host more events, and hand out scholarships to more Arab-Americans students to attend the Convention next year!
