The Arab American Institute (AAI) is a nonprofit organization committed to the civic and political empowerment of Americans of Arab descent. AAI represents the policy and community interests of Arab Americans throughout the U.S. through two primary focus areas: campaigns and elections, and policy formulation and research.
The Arab American Institute Foundation (AAIF) was founded by the Arab American Institute in 1995. AAIF supports programs that promote greater awareness of Arab Americans in the U.S., demographic research and international outreach. AAIF serves as the primary national resource on the Arab American experience for the media, academia, government agencies and the private sector.
