Thanks for joining us at MOVE.
MOVE (Mobilize, Organize, Vocalize, Empower), a first-of-its-kind event that took place in Dearborn, Michigan on November 16-18. MOVE, hosted by ACCESS and its three national institutions, brought together over 500 changemakers and key allies from all corners of the country to explore intersectionality in a safe environment, have critical conversations about a wide range of issues that impact Arab Americans, and build stronger relationships with other marginalized communities.
Check out these highlights.
- An opening panel discussion about what it means to lead in our current moment.
- A conversation with comedians Suzie Afridi and Amer Zahr about power of laughter and its impact in a changing world.
- Nearly 40 workshop sessions covering topics in the arts, activism, philanthropy, organizational development, and youth empowerment.

- A tribute to two giants in the worlds of philanthropy, the arts, and advocacy: Russell J. Ebeid and Dr. Jack G. Shaheen.
