We are extremely excited to collaborate with the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) and the rest of its member organizations to host #NationalArabAmericanVoterDay on Thursday, October 8th! #vote #RegisterToVote

*ANNOUNCEMENT*

This year we are expanding our civic engagement efforts to host the first-ever #NATIONALARABAMERICANVOTERDAY, October 8, 2020! Our goal is to mobilize the Arab American community to make their voices heard during this critical Election Day.

Thank you to the National Network of Arab American Communities members that initiated this idea, and have been advocating on behalf of their local communities in cities across the country for decades! This move is long over due, and we're excited to be in community with the members in the network as we embark on this initiative!

In 2014, we hosted 'National Arab American Voter *Registration* Day' in partnership with the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), the Arab American Institute, and the NAAP-National | Network of Arab-American Professionals.

More information will be released in the upcoming days. In the meantime, you can join us by becoming an official partner! Learn more: https://p2a.co/hvUQuLJ

Dearborn's Virtual Redistricting Town Hall is LIVE NOW https://www.facebook.com/RedistrictingMI/videos/184019172818402/
Hello, I'm Zahra Ahmad, an Iraqi-American reporter at The Flint Journal. I'd like to take a moment to share my family's story of revolution, refuge and return. This story was written to connect with immigrants or children of immigrants with shared experiences growing up in the United States. Background on the project with Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and MLive.com: Being an Iraqi in the United States, I've faced challenges unique to those whose parents have sacrificed it all for their children's future. Growing up in the states, I felt assimilating was the only way I could succeed and repay my parents. After all, they'd given up the life they'd built to become strangers in a foreign country. In recent years, I realized the suppression of my Iraqi culture has made it difficult to recognize the person I had become. In February, alongside the fearlessly talented Brontë Wittpenn, I traveled to Iraq after immigrating to the states 20 years prior. There, I reunited with family, abolished stereotypes of the Middle East and strengthened the connection to my ancestral roots. This five-part series gives a voice to immigrants, people who've played a significant role in shaping our land of opportunity. To those of you reading with shared experiences, I hope this story makes you feel less alone. Please, feel free to connect with me and talk.
