AHM 2020 Calendar

Welcome to Arab Heritage Month at the University of Michigan! MESA's priority is to support everyone's, health, wellness, and safety. In adhering to the university's announcement, we canceled physical programming for Arab Heritage Month 2020 and have shifted to online engagements. From March 23rd to April 17th, we will be sharing and celebrating Arab, Southwest Asian, and North African culture through a variety of posts Mon/Wed/Fri on MESA’s Instagram (@mesauofm) and Facebook (/MesaUofM) pages. Stay updated with our pages for future virtual engagements for the month! 

About Arab Heritage Month

Nationally, Arab Heritage Month is celebrated throughout the month of April. Many of our events focus on broadening the conversation about inclusion and exclusion, with the hopes of engaging in dialogue about the nuances of language, culture, and geography. We hope to explore and highlight stories that represent the perspectives across the Arab diaspora, exploring the terms "Arab" "Middle Eastern/North African" and "Southwest Asian/North African."

The official hashtag for Arab Heritage Month at U-M is #MESAxAHM. Suggested hashtags to also include are: #ArabWolverines #MichiganMENA #WeExist
