The Arab American Civic Council welcomes its summer 2019 intern to the team.
Sabrina Afana is a third-year Political Science major at the University of California, Santa Cruz. As a Palestinian-American involved in UCSC’s Students for Justice in Palestine and Muslim Student Association, Sabrina gained a lot of insight into organizing. Interning with I Know I Can! in Ramallah, Palestine, her passion for the Palestinian cause only increased and she made BDS a focus of her SJP’s activism.
Previously an intern for the Arab American Business and Professional Association, Sabrina joined the Arab American Civic Council to help further advocacy and proper representation for the Arab-American community. After completing her Bachelor’s in Political Science, she plans on going on to further her studies so that she can continue her social justice work in the future.
