About The Arab American Association of New York

In 2001, a group of prominent Arab immigrants and Arab Americans recognized the growing need in the community for an organization that would serve the social and economic needs of the growing Arab population in Bay Ridge and the surrounding neighborhoods of Brooklyn, NY. Although the process of establishing the organization began before the September 11th attacks, the founders felt compelled to take more immediate action after they witnessed the heightened sense of fear and the acts of blatant discrimination aimed at their community in the days following the attacks.

AAANY officially opened its doors as a not-for-profit organization in December 2001, and since then has provided invaluable social services to tens of thousands of families by working tirelessly to empower, defend, and advocate for New York’s Arab American community. For nearly 20 years AAANY has been a bridge between the Arab community and the rest of New York, fostering greater understanding of Arab culture and immigrant issues, serving as a liaison between schools, government, and other institutions and residents to address issues of discrimination, and providing a variety of culturally sensitive social services.

Our mission is to support and empower the Arab American and Arab immigrant community by providing services to help them adjust to their new home and become active members of society. Our aim is for families to achieve goals of independence, productivity, and stability.
