Details: The Arab American Institute will be participating in the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance. We will be volunteering with the National Park Service, working to preserve our Nation’s most iconic and respected memorials through planting flowers, mulching, painting, or removing litter and invasive species. The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts originally launched in 2002 by the nonprofit 9/11 Day, with wide support by the 9/11 community and leading national service organizations. This effort first established the inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.

Details: Join us for a congressional briefing to discuss the latest political developments in Tunisia in the aftermath of the passing of President Caid-Essebi, the upcoming parliamentarian and presidential elections in October 2019, and their potential repercussions on the stability of the country. The briefing will also be an opportunity to discuss the current bilateral strategic investment framework dialogue between Tunisia and the United States.   We are excited to be joined by three newly elected municipal officials who were part of Tunisia’s historic 2018 democratic elections, and who are participants in the inaugural Tunisian cohort of the U.S. – MENA Experiential Partnership – a year-long, hands-on good governance learning exchange between American and Tunisian public officials, supported by the U.S. State Department’s Middle East Partnership Initiative.   Lunch & refreshments will be served.
