Today marks the two year anniversary since the passing of an important icon and a great leader of our community. Miriam Khalil Zayed was a daughter, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a wife, a loyal leader, and a friend to all. She is missed by everyone who knew her, worked with her, and ever met her. She was a genuine and sincere person, a pillar of our community, and the heart and soul of the Arab American Democratic Club and we miss her dearly.

General information

The AADC serves the political interests of the Arab American residents of Illinois and businesses and we are proud of our accomplishments. The AADC is governed through an executive committee in annual and monthly meetings. New members, organizations, participants, and observers are welcome and encouraged to participate in the electoral process. Past accomplishments include monthly meetings with elected officials, mayors, state senators, state representatives, US congressmen, US senators, governors, and presidential candidates. The AADC works to bring people together based on common and concrete interests in a manner consistent with our respect of the principles of equality and justice for all. The AADC works with volunteers in addition to the contributions of our community members. The AADC operates on a modest budget; we do more with less. We ask you to support the AADC. It is the only registered Arab American political organization doing this type of service in and for the community. By attending our functions and supporting our advertisers, together we can build a strong respectable community based organization. More importantly we need to turn our dream into a reality. This is only possible through your support.

I want to congratulate the Arab American Democratic Club for another successful Candidate's Brunch. I want to send a special congratulations out to my friend Judge Rouhy Shalabi who is now the first Palestinian American Judge in the State of Illinois. Diversity on our bench is as important as diversity anywhere else.

A think tank in Chicago, Illinois is pleading for more immigration to fill jobs in the cities hospitality industry while African-American youth in the inner-city remains higher than most other cities. Here my friends is the real problem with liberalism/progressiveness controlled by the Democratic Party. They do not want their supporters to work but to get a government check and protest on 100% of their "free time"! http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/08/26/chicago-group-pleads-immigrants-fill-jobs-black-youth-remain-work/ .
