Every year, we honor and end April’s Arab American Heritage Month with a night of community celebration – a night where our longstanding leaders, elected officials, advocates, professionals, families and youth share a space of love and unity at our annual gala. However, COVID-19 forced us to go virtual.
On Sunday, May 17, the Arab American Civic Council hosted its ‘Arab Americans Rising’ live virtual fundraiser to discuss its recent accomplishments, upcoming plans, and raise funds to sustain our programs. If you missed, you can watch it here:
As we reflect on our recent work, we are humbled and grateful for all that we have been able to achieve. During the live event, we shared highlights from our recent efforts such as responding to the COVID-19 and mobilizing more than 3,500 Arab American households to vote in the primaries, and much more.
We’d like to thank all those who joined us on Sunday and supported our work with a gift. However, we haven’t reached our fundraising goal yet.
Your contribution will help us give youth a space to grow and build their leadership skills through our fellowship program, mobilize thousands of Arab Americans households vote in the 2020 general elections, organize and uplift voices in Little Arabia to help sustain the livelihoods of the community, and much more.
