AL-HEWAR CENTER 20TH ANNIVERSARY


About Al-Hewar Center Al-Hewar Magazine was established in Washington, DC, in May 1989 as an independent platform for the exchange of thoughts and ideas among the members of the Arab American community. Five years later, the Magazine established Al-Hewar Center in metro Washington. A series of discussions among a very diverse group of Arabs in the Washington area (from 1992 to 1994) led to the founding of Al-Hewar Center in December 1994. The goal of the discussions was to work toward forging a common intra-Arab perspective that would help resolve conflicts, bridge differences, and advance understanding and cooperation among all Arabs. The impetus for these discussions was answering the question: how can the Arabs convince others about the value of Arab culture and the validity of Arab concerns if they cannot convince themselves?

About Alhewar

Al-Hewar Center provides a forum for dialogue among Arabs and between Arabs and Americans in order to foster greater understanding and mutual respect. Since the Center was founded, Arabs from all backgrounds have come together to discuss issues of concern. We believe that only through dialogue will we be able to discover our common goals and present a united community. It is our hope to help the members of the Arab community achieve a better understanding of one another and to help Americans better understand us and appreciate our issues and point-of-view. Being involved in Al-Hewar Center (al-hewar means “dialogue”) means supporting the positive role that Al-Hewar has played in promoting an exchange of cultures and in establishing a successful dialogue among people of all backgrounds. The experience of Al-Hewar is, above all, an experiment on a small scale of what needs to be done on a large scale: to work for understanding and cooperation; to respect the right of others to think and believe as they wish; and to look for the commonalties among people of differing opinions. Al-Hewar Center does not take positions, nor is it affiliated with any country, organization, political party, religion, or ideology; rather it provides a forum for respectful dialogue that is open to all opinions. The goals of the Center include (1) building an open dialogue among the members of the Arab  community in order to strengthen the community and bring about greater cooperation, and (2)  achieving better understanding of the Arab identity and culture by Arab Americans and the larger  American society. The United States offers us as Arab Americans the freedom to come together and  to showcase the best of Arab culture and Islamic civilization.  Since it was established in 1994, Al-Hewar Center has hosted nearly 1000 events, including conversations with politicians, diplomats, religious figures, thinkers, educators, visiting delegations, youth, poets, artists, musicians, scientists and more. These events have allowed audiences and speakers to share their knowledge, learn from each other, and practice a respectful form of dialogue that they in turn can share with their own communities. Interesting, intellectual, and sometimes controversial presentations are made at the Center, creating exciting opportunities for deeper understanding, expanded awareness, and community growth. Your support for Al-Hewar Center will help us continue to offer this enriching cultural and intellectual experience.
