The event is called MOVE, standing for mobilize, organize, vocalize and empower. The goal is to bring Arab Americans from all walks of life together to discuss issues facing the community.

Discussions will focus on topics ranging from the arts to addiction to philanthropy, to the need for better data about Arab American communities. The conference will be held April 26-28 at The Henry Hotel in Dearborn, with some events at other locations, including the Arab American National Museum.
