Proclamations, Resolutions, and Statements Issued in Commemoration of National Arab American Heritage Month-April 2022

Since we launched our movement for National Arab American Heritage Month in 2017, we have received numerous proclamations for this initiative. This year, the Arab America Foundation salutes over two-hundred-fifty Arab Americans on twenty-six state teams who have approached governors, state officials, mayors, school boards, and county executives across the country. Additionally, we have received 28 state/governor proclamations to date. Our goal is to reach 50 states this year. Can you get your state on board and help our community make history?

This document updates daily as we receive more proclamations.
