Come join us at the 2016 ADC Convention in the heart of Washington, DC! 

The convention is the perfect opportunity to support the important work of ADC while simultaneously reaching out to what is the largest annual gathering of Arab Americans and supporters.  Come take advantage of a valuable opportunity to meet and network with active members of the community from across the country.  This is an event for the entire family and a great way to educate the next generation about Arab American history, culture, politics and the future of the community.
