Palestinian American Activism
"If Palestinian-Americans are serious about having an impact on policy, they and other Arab-Americans must participate in the political system at all levels so the process can respond to them. This means contributing and volunteering in political campaigns, writing to the press, voting in a coordinated fashion, and presenting receivable messages to policy-makers. It also means serving the community as engaged citizens, participating in local civic and cultural life, and making sure people around the country know that Palestinian-Americans are fellow Americans and good neighbors," argue Rafaat Dajani.
