April is National Arab American Heritage Month (NAAHM). It celebrates the accomplishments and contributions of Arab Americans to the United States while recognizing and appreciating their hard work.
The Arab America Foundation launched NAAHM in 2017. The President of the United States, Congress, the U.S. Department of State, and 45 state governors have all recognized NAAHM. Many states have also passed permanent legislation to designate April as NAAHM month.
This month holds special significance as it highlights the rich cultural heritage and diverse contributions of Arab Americans to American society. This is an opportunity to contemplate the struggles experienced by Arab Americans and attempts to support fairness and inclusion.
