Founded in 1989, the Arab American Leadership Council is a network and resource for Arab American elected and appointed officials -- all of whom are deeply involved in American political life. It is also a network for Arab Americans who want to learn more about their parties and become more involved in the political process as it is home to the Arab American Democratic and Republican Caucuses.
Follow the links below to find profiles of Arab Americans in and seeking office and get updates about the political work Arab Americans are doing across the country. You can also view or print the Roster of Arab Americans in Public Service and Political Life, the only publication identifying Arab Americans in elected or appointed office and serving as political professionals.
Remember, these are living pages -- we're adding new names and offices every day, as our community's political force grows. If you are, or know of, an Arab American who should be part of the ALC, please contact us. In this case, more is more.
