At our conference we gathered hundreds of Arab American leaders from across the country. A third of those in attendance were either high school or college students. The turnout of active Arab American students demonstrated the hopes and aspirations of younger generations to enter into politics and become more engaged on both the local and national levels. Many great conversations and passionate responses came out of this year’s conference. AAI was extremely happy to have been able to provide a platform for many young voices to share their stories and the great work they are doing in their communities. As a result of a growing conversation regarding the presence of young Arab American voices, we will be convening an intimate group of young leaders in early 2016 to continue the work started and build for Arab American Leadership Days in the Spring. Yes, we are talking about April 2016 already so stay tuned for more information in the weeks ahead.
