(ADC). ADC is a nonprofit

people of Arab descent and promote their unique cultural heritage.
Additionally, ADC is the largest grassroots Arab-American organization in the

discrimination, immigration, employment, family disputes, and legislation.
Additionally, Alia Cambel had the opportunity to visit the Federal Election
Commission, meet Representative John Conyers (D-MI) at the Democratic National Committee’s
Headquarters, and be featured on the Montgomery Municipal Cable Channel show, "The
Edge” with Garland Nixon.
Alia Cambel and Mohammad Mahmoudi also helped plan this
year’s ADC National Convention titled, "Defining Our Role in a Changing World,”
which offered presentations on discrimination and bias against Arab Americans, U.S.
Middle East policy, and the Arab Spring. During the convention interns met with Congressmen, Ambassadors, Dignitaries, acclaimed authors, and many other public
Interning with ADC has been such a positive experience that
when asked about her future Cambel says, "I hope to continue my relationship
with ADC even after this amazing summer internship.”
