ADC Begins Construction on American-Arab Center for Civil & Human Rights

posted on: Mar 6, 2008

ADC Michigan is pleased to announce that the construction of the landmark American-Arab Center for Civil & Human Rights (ACCHR), a project of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, is well underway.

The foundation has been set, the framework is being assembled, and the bricks are being placed.

Once completed, the 10,000 square foot, two story state-of-the art facility will serve as an Education and Resource Center on Civil and Human Rights. In addition, the Center will house an Arab-American Cultural Center, a comprehensive resource Library, and all of ADC Michigan’s many programs.

Also, the Center will allow space for ADC to grow in staff and services in the State of Michigan, home to the largest concentration of Arab-Americans in the nation, and will serve as a vital link between the United States and the Arab world.

Through the ACCHR, which is a 501(c)(3) entity, ADC hopes to strengthen its advocacy services to the community and broaden its positive influence throughout Michigan, across the United States and around the world.

As construction continues through the spring and summer months, donations and support are vital.

ADC hopes to complete this project and officially open the doors of the ACCHR by the end of 2008. “We look forward to celebrating the Grand Opening of ADC’s landmark Center in Michigan,” said Imad Hamad, ADC Sr. National Advisor/Regional Director and ACCHR President/CEO. “We are especially grateful to our donors and community friends who continue to support the mission of this Center, as our mutual dream comes to fruition,” continued Hamad. “ADC is very proud of this landmark Center for Civil & Human Rights and we can’t wait for the Grand Opening!,” said ADC President Mary Rose Oakar.
