The Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC) envisions powerful and liberated Arab communities living with dignity from here to our homelands. We see the liberation of Arab people inextricably tied to the liberation of all people of color.
AROC is a grassroots membership-based organization that organizes our community towards justice and self-determination for all. AROC members build community power in the Bay Area by participating in leadership development, political education, and campaigns that challenge militarism, repression and racism.
Recognizing the diversity of experiences and interests within the Arab community, AROC devises a multi-pronged strategy to meet those needs while prioritizing the most marginalized sectors of our constituency to inform our work. We provide direct legal services to low income Arab and Muslim immigrants to meet the growing need for support around family reunification, deportation defense, asylum, and FBI repression.
Through our direct services, advocacy and organizing we aim to equip our communities with the tools to challenge State violence and take part in organized efforts to fight for our dignity and liberation here and in our homelands.
