About Arab America
With close to four million Arab Americans in the U.S., Arab America’s primary mission is to unify the diverse and growing Arab American community, to promote an accurate image about them, and to act as a “bridge” between the Arab and non-Arab American mainstream communities through the dissemination of events, articles, and various information via the website, e-mail messaging, and social media.
