Dear Bronwin Peel,

Help ADC STOP Hate!

Hateful rhetoric continues to target the Arab-American community, both Christian and Muslim, and ADC needs your help to put an end to it. During this election season we have seen a dramatic increase anti-Arab and anti-Muslim bias. One does not have to look past main stream media outlets to notice how the images and names of Arabs and Muslims are routinely connected with negative stereotypes.

ADC’s forthcoming Hate Crimes Report, which will be widely distributed, documents a continuing pattern of hate and bias toward the community.

The American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee ( continues to work for you and defend the rights of the Arab-American community. Below are some of our recent accomplishments. Please consider making a 100% Tax Deductible contribution to the ADC-Research Institute so that you can help us help the community, defend our constitution and encourage a foreign policy based on equality and human rights for all. As the premiere Arab American Organization in the United States -- with chapters across the Nation and members in every state of the Union -- ADC is leading the fight to protect the community and needs your help to do so.
