ADC’s Women’s Empowerment Forum (WEF) “to give Arab American women the opportunity and the space to communicate their issues and find solutions in regards to women’s rights.”
ADC administers a Kahlil Gibran Appreciation Initiative to promote “a more far-reaching appreciation for the cherished works” of the late philosopher, poet, artist, and writer (1883-1931).
In 1993 the organization joined forces with the American Civil Liberties Union to sue Pan American World Airways for having detained a man of Iranian descent during the first Persian Gulf War. “Arab Americans will not tolerate such blatant acts of corporate discrimination which unfairly treat us as a suspect class of criminals and terrorists,” said ADC President Albert Mokhiber.
ADC in 2004 contributed $1,000 to the congressional campaign of Cynthia McKinney (D – Georgia). Samer Khalaf (Chairman of the ADC Political Outreach Committee in New Jersey) and Hareth Raddawi (a Board member of ADC’s Chicago branch) made personal contributions to McKinney’s campaign as well.
