Former Legal Director, Arab American Family Support Center

The youth program at AAFSC tries to help Arab kids through difficult times. Many of them are really beaten down, their grades and social life are suffering. It’s such a stigma, the other kids are not nice. We’ve heard many reports of school children being harassed and beaten up.

We are working with schools to create a club for them with activities – a safe space to express themselves.
