Candidates seeking state, county, and city offices addressed Arab Americans in Anaheim, California during a candidate’s night hosted by the Arab American Civic Council (AACC) last week. Arab Americans from across southern California packed the room and voiced their concerns on issues they care about tackling everything from local business development to pushing the candidates to do more outreach to Anaheim’s Arab American community.


Throughout the night, AACC also helped community members register to vote and provided #YallaVote voter mobilization gear to help amplify the Arab American voice in this election.

With 11 candidates vying for Arab American support, AACC Founder and Executive Director Rashad Al-Dabbagh was pleased with the event. “We had great cooperation with different groups in the community and there was a great discourse between the candidates and those who were in attendance.”

AACC will host another candidate night on October 24th at the Arab American Community Center in Anaheim where they hope an even greater number of candidates will address community concerns.
