Dear Friends of CAC,
This year, CAC continued its journey back to in person events after the pandemic and our goals has been focused on building bridges and connecting all diverse cultures in our community!
In 2022 we fulfilled all our promises.
- We started a historic partnership with Boston Public Schools (BPS) by being accepted to hold a summer and after school Arabic, art, and music programs for BPS students.
- We launched CAC Human Library, we revived and expanded CAC Social Nadi, we established CAC Youth Choir, and we brought back in-person programs like film screenings, book discussions, children’s storytelling events, and concerts.
- We have been working with local partners like Historic New England, Somerville public library, Norwood cultural festival, Norwood public library, and Plainville public library.
- We collaborated with local and international musicians and held top quality music concerts.
- CAC Arabic school returned to full in-person instruction and CAC online Arabic program is going strong attracting students from around the world.
- CAC continues to provide continuing education workshops and support to its dedicated team of Arabic language teachers to build a rich and inclusive classroom environment.
We achieved all this because of you!
Your trust has been our motive and beacon!
We are launching our Year-End Campaign with a goal of $50,000 that will help us sustain our mission and continue to build new programs to serve the community!
Our goals for 2023 are to:
- Bring back the CAC Annual Arab American Festival on May 13, 2023.
- Start the First Arab American bookfair in Spring 2023 in partnership with Interlink Publishing to raise awareness about Arabic and Arab American literature and authors for all ages, children and adults.
- Implement a state-wide outreach plan to tell CAC’s story, spread the world about our mission, and build stronger partnerships.
- Expand CAC Choir and Youth Orchestra by providing scholarships, resources, and opportunities.
We cannot accomplish this without YOU! Please Donate to CAC Today!
Thank you for your trust, partnership, and continued support.
