Celebrate Arab American Heritage Month
Can you tell me about National Arab American Heritage Month?
During the month of April, LA County Library, along with the Arab America Foundation, is celebrating the achievements of Arab Americans through the celebration of National Arab American Heritage Month (NAAHM).
Across the United States, cultural institutions, school districts, municipalities, state legislatures, public servants, non-profit organizations, and LA County Library are engaging in special events that celebrate Arab Americans’ rich heritage, culture and contributions to our nation.
Arab America and the Arab America Foundation launched the National Arab American Heritage Month initiative in 2017, with just a handful of states recognizing the initiative. Now, it is truly a nation-wide celebration!
For more information about Arab American Heritage Month, including promoting the Arab heritage, educating Americans about Arab history, religion, culture, contributions, and connecting the close to 4 million Arab Americans in the US, visit ArabAmericaFoundation.org.
