AAI and the Arab American Cultural & Community Center (ACC) will be hosting a town hall entitled “Israeli-Palestinian Peace: A U.S. Policy Imperative” tonight at 7:00pm. The event will focus on the latest political developments regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and explore what role the United States can and should play to overcome the numerous obstacles that are keeping a viable peace agreement from being achieved. 

The community discussion will feature Farouk Shami and Dr. Abdel-Kader Fustok at the ACC Houston office at 10555 Stancliff Rd, Houston, TX 77099. This event is free and open to the public, but if you plan on attending I encourage you to RSVP here.

You are also welcome to join us the next day, on Saturday, October 13, for a Yalla Vote phone bank from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. AAI and ACC staff will host this volunteer event to get out the Arab American vote in Texas. Bring your phone and a laptop, and we'll provide an online phone banking tool and scripts for volunteers to call Arab Americans in Texas to encourage them to vote on Election Day. Each volunteer will receive a free Yalla Vote t-shirt. Please contact Bobby Dale at if you’re interested in volunteering.

If you have any questions about the event please contact me at, and media interested in covering these events should contact Omar Tewfik at (202) 652-4988.

I hope to see you there this weekend.
