It’s essential that we celebrate the youth and young leaders among us so that they can take pride in their identity and cultural heritage,” stated Warren David, Co-Founder of the Arab America Foundation and President of Arab America. “We’re excited to identify and recognize the 40 Under 40, Class of 2023, and demonstrate our pride in their remarkable achievements.”

In addition to 40 Under 40, The Arab America Foundation announced its Class of 2022 awardees for both 20 Under 20 and 30 Under 30 in recent months.
