And the Emerging Leader Award goes to ... Sara El-Amine! [#ArabAmericanSummit]
Among the many reasons to attend The Arab American Summit this November is the chance to meet change-maker Sara El-Amine, this year's recipient of NNAAC's Emerging Leader Award.
The award recognizes Arab Americans under 35 who have achieved significant accomplishments in their work, enhancing the overall state of Arab Americans, and who will undoubtedly continue to exceed for years to come.
El-Amine is Executive Director of the grassroots nonprofit Organizing for Action (OFA), which has brought together millions of Americans fighting for real and lasting change, by training, educating and inspiring engaged community members across the United States. With more than 250 local chapters around the country, they are committed to finding and training the next generation of great progressive organizers. El-Amine has also worked on both of President Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns.
El-Amine will receive the prestigious award at The Arab American Summit’s Change-Makers Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015 in Dearborn, Mich. Please join us for the evening of recognition and for the two-day dynamic Summit Nov. 7-8. The biennial conference on Arab American issues will convene leaders, advocates, students, activists and allies from across the country. The Summit will feature forums on issues facing the Arab American community and strategies for overcoming them; workshops on nonprofit management, leadership, activism and advocacy; as well as a customized track for high school students.
