What does ADC do?
Whenever Arab Americans face discrimination, ADC's Legal Department is there to provide advice and referrals. ADC has a cadre of full time staff attorneys ready to help defend the interests of the community, one person at a time. Our staff attorneys have helped hundreds of people defend themselves against a wide variety of abuses, and been instrumental in many important legal victories in the fight for civil rights and against discrimination. ADC's Education Department works with schools, teachers and Arab-American parents across the country to combat discrimination and tensions in school and ensure that the curriculum does not perpetuate stereotypes or misinformation about the Arab world or Islam. ADC also serves as a vital clearing house of accurate information on Arab culture and history for educators and school systems.
ADC's Governmental Affairs department works with Congress, the White House, the State and Justice departments, and other elements of government to promote the interests of the community. Members can contribute to ADC's political action committee to support political candidates
ADC's Communications Department combats defamation, stereotyping and bias in films, television and news reporting, and has become a widely respected media watch-dog. ADC spokespersons are internationally recognized voices for the Arab-American community.
ADC's Organizing Department mobilizes the community by coordinating the efforts of chapters, local offices and activists across the nation, and directing ADC's national campaigns.
For over 20 years, ADC has been building bridges with other communities and forging coalitions with organizations throughout the country on issues of mutual concern.
Since 1980 ADC has been the leading Arab-American voice on foreign policy issues, especially by defending the rights of the Palestinian people and opposing the sanctions against Iraqi civilians.
