600 Arab-Americans Call for ADC Spring and Resignation of Safa Rifka and Ray Hanania

Sign Now: http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/adc

In less than two days, over 600 Arab-Americans and have signed a petition calling on two board members to resign from the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC). Signatories to this petition include former ADC staff members, prominent Arab-American professionals, artists, and activists, as well as non-Arab friends of the Arab-American community.

This rapid outpouring of concern is a testament to the commitment that so many have to ensure that this once thriving grassroots organization is rehabilitated – not destroyed. In calling for principled reform, signatories from all segments of our community have made a bold statement to ensure that the decades of hard work by employees, board members, volunteers and allies will not go to waste but will continue and be built upon to move ADC forward.

Unfortunately, ADC has become a shadow of itself over the past decade, and in many avoidable ways has grown out of touch with Arab-American communities. Therefore, we remain firm in our demand that accountability at the top of the organization is key to ensure that a new generation of energy and momentum is achieved. Only with fresh energy and principled leadership will ADC be adequately equipped to best represent our communities’ interests and defend human rights.

It is in this constructive spirit that we challenge ADC to embrace change. Change is in the air. Now is the time for this needed institution to become revitalized.

Thank you for your support. Please keep sharing the petition until the resignations occur.
