LOCAL: ARAB-AMERICAN COMMUNITY CENTER DAMAGED: An arson fire badly damaged an Arab-American community Center; Chicago Anti-War Coalition organizes emergency benefit

For more than 20 years, the Arab American Community Center has served as a meeting space and locus for progressive organizing in Chicago's Palestinian and Arab communities. On December 3, the Center was the target of an arson attack that gutted the offices of two important community groups as well as seriously damaging the building. The police are currently investigating to determine if the attack was a 'hate crime'. Given the increasingly repressive political climate, and the wave of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim attacks across the country, the Chicago Coalition Against War and Racism is organizing an emergency benefit to help rebuild the Center.
