WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Arab America Foundation is excited to announce the CONNECT Arab America: Empowerment Summit to be held, on Friday, October 25, and Saturday, October 26, 2024. at the Dearborn Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, Michigan 48126.

“We’re spearheading a movement, rallying our youth and the national Arab American community,” said Warren David, co-founder of the Arab America Foundation. “This summit is pivotal in fulfilling our mission to celebrate our heritage, foster education, forge connections, and empower Arab Americans. Expect top-notch speakers, vibrant performances, valuable networking, and, most importantly, participants from across the country,” added David.

This year’s summit is a unique opportunity to connect with a diverse community of like-minded individuals, visionary leaders, and influential speakers.

After the cancellation of last year’s summit by the Doubletree Hilton Hotel in the wake of the tragic events in Gaza, we are determined to come together and assert our identity. This year, we’ve chosen Dearborn, as the location of our summit—a city that symbolizes the heart of Arab America and has faced marginalization amidst the recent crisis in Gaza.

Join us in Dearborn, where we will provide support and resources to empower our community. Prepare for an unforgettable experience filled with engaging discussions on identity, issues facing our community, women’s empowerment, youth leadership, mainstream media, elections, and the protection of our narrative and rights.

The Arab America Foundation (AAF) (www.arabamericafoundation.org) is a non-profit (501c3) educational and cultural organization. The mission of AAF is to promote the Arab heritage, educate Americans about the Arab identity, and connect and empower Arab Americans with each other and with diverse organizations across the U.S.
