About American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) was founded in 1980 in an attempt to help defend and protect Americans of Arab descent against discrimination, hate crimes and stereotyping.  The organization promotes Arab culture and offers information about Arab affairs around the world to the American public.

Interns work with ADC's research institute, the charitable and educational arm of the organization.  They can work in the education, government affairs, information systems, legal and media departments and the ADC president's office.  Each week, interns visit governmental offices, various D.C. organizations and embassies to discuss policymaking and policy issues that concern Arab-Americans.  Interns also write and publish the newsletter, Intern Perspectives.


Open to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate students and recent graduates.  Interns must be or become regular ADC members.  Non-U.S. citizens are welcome, but must arrange for visas themselves.
