Join us in takaful-- we are more powerful together!
At the top of this logo (created by Palestinian artist Chris Gazaleh) is the word "takaful" in Arabic. Takaful تكافل means “sharing the burdens” of support and mutual aid as a community. In other words, we got us.
Right now, AROC needs our community practice of takaful more than ever. We are working around the clock to support our people in Gaza and across Palestine. We are mobilizing direct actions, rallies, political education and more. We are supporting our local youth who are fighting back against racist, white supremacist campaigns that challenge their humanity. We are leading, alongside other Palestinian led organizations, nationwide campaigns to support the struggle for a free, liberated, decolonized Palestine.
Very few foundations fund Palestine organizing. We depend on support from people like you in order to make our work possible.AROC is one of a handful of grassroots organizations building power in the SWANA/Arab community in the United States. We are the only Arab-led organization in the country providing free legal services to our SWANA community.
We fiercely and unapologetically hold cultural and political space for our people.
We provide direct services and legal support for hundreds of SWANA families every year. We organize Arab youth around the issues that they care about and help them win campaigns. We build coalitions nationally to centralize the voices and struggles of Arab people. We mobilize rapid responses to the attacks on our people across our homelands.
Partner with us to continue to build collective power in our community!
