MOVE–which stands for Mobilize, Organize, Vocalize, and Empower–is the only national gathering that brings together Arab Americans of all ages and from across the professional and political spectrum to discuss the most pressing issues facing our community. Produced by ACCESS, the nation’s largest Arab American organization, and its three national institutions – the Arab American National Museum, the National Network for Arab American Communities, and the Center for Arab American Philanthropy – this biennial, two-day convening is held in Dearborn, Michigan, the heart of Arab America. At MOVE 2019, we will provide space for artists, activists, scholars, philanthropists, and others from the Arab American community to connect, learn and exchange ideas. As always, we welcome allies from other communities who want to build with us and explore ways to further intersectional organizing. This year’s program will address the theme, Your Voice, Our Future, with speakers and panelists from a range of industries discussing how we can turn up our voices and elevate our communities against the backdrop of what has emerged as a particularly challenging and critical time for communities of color. 

Join us in November 2019. Stay tuned for registration information.
