Proclamations, Resolutions, and Statements Issued in Commemoration of National Arab American Heritage Month-April 2024

posted on: Apr 10, 2024

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 and fifty Arab Americans on twenty-four state teams who continue approaching governors, state officials, mayors, school boards, and county executives nationwide. Can you get your city, county, or state on board and help our community make history?

This document will be updated daily as we receive more proclamations.
