Arab American Heritage Month
During a time of heightened hate crimes, bigotry, and misunderstanding towards the Arab American community, it is more imperative than ever to use education and information sharing to embrace the Arab culture, dispel stereotypes, and empower the next generation of Arab American trailblazers.
Arab American Heritage Month takes place in April after new resolution was passed by Illinois legislative then introduced by Commissioner Sean Morrison and passed by Cook County Board of Commissioners. It celebrates the Arab American heritage and culture and pays tribute to the contributions of Arab Americans.
Multiple states, several cultural institutions, some school districts, various municipalities, a variety of state legislatures, a number of public servants, and Arab Americans are engaging in special events that celebrate Arab American community’s rich heritage and numerous contributions to the society.
