Emergency benefit for the Arab American Action Network
On December 3rd, 2001, a fire caused by arson damaged the offices of
the Arab American Action Network (AAAN)--a grass roots,
community-based organization serving Arab Americans and Arab
immigrants in Chicago. The fire destroyed most of the AAAN's files,
computers, electronic equipment, and office furniture.
Please join us in helping to rebuild and continue our important work
at this critical time in the arab community.
