“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
As the nation’s largest non-partisan, non-sectarian, grassroots Arab American civil rights organization, ADC recognizes the importance of education. Education is at the heart of ADC’s mission to protect the civil rights of Arab Americans, promote mutual understanding, and preserve the Arab heritage in America. In order to fulfill our mission, people all over the country need access to materials on Arab culture, history, religion, etc. that present an unbiased and correct representation of Arabs, Arab Americans, and their rich cultural heritage. ADC has prepared and compiled a list of resources and lesson plans on a variety of related subjects. There are resources students, teachers, parents, as well as general information.
Please feel free to download and use these materials. If you have additional resources or documents, please send them to ADC so our resource library can continue to grow!
