Posted on June 05, 2015 in Action Alerts

Please join the Arab American Institute in celebrating immigrant heritage by sharing your own "Welcome" story-- it could be about when you arrived in the United States, when your parents made the journey, or the story of a distant relative a few generations ago. We need to hear it.

As Arab Americans, we have always shared these stories with great pride. Now, we need to make them part of this wonderful national conversation in support of comprehensive immigration reform.

Tell your Representative to strip out amendments that change U.S. policy on Israeli Settlements

Posted on June 05, 2015 in Action Alerts

The U.S. Congress is close to passing a two-sentence amendment to a Senate trade bill, and a similar one attached to a House customs bill, that will entirely change the U.S.’s policy in regards to Israel and its settlements. 

The amendments (offered by Senator Cardin and Representative Roskam) are framed as a righteous slap on the hand of the European countries participating in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS).

Even a 60...

Obama’s Overdue AUMF Proposal Permeated with Problematic Language

Posted by on February 20, 2015 in Blog

By Eve Soliman Winter Intern, 2015

Obama’s proposed Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) against ISIL is long overdue. Since U.S. military action against ISIL began on Aug. 8, 2014 we have launched 1,900 airstrikes in Syria and Iraq. Unsettlingly, our military campaign still lacks Congressional backing.

Sent to Congress last week, President Obama’s AUMF request is the first proposal asking Congress to authorize military force in almost thirteen years. The three key points from the AUMF proposal against ISIL are: 1) it limits the campaign to a...

Posted by on February 13, 2015 in Blog

AAI joined a coalition of 150 civil rights organizations in a letter sent this morning to Attorney General Eric Holder imploring him to direct the FBI to open a federal hate crime investigation into the tragic slaying of three Arab American Muslims, Deah Shaddy Barakat (23 years old), Yusor Mohammad Abu Salha (21 years old), and Razan Mohammad Abu Salha (19 years old), who were brutally murdered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on February 10th.

 With hate crimes targeting Arab Americans and American Muslims on the rise, we expect our country’s highest elected officials and the Department of Justice to...
