Moroccan conference to be held in Washington D.C. June 24

Moroccan conference scheduled in Washington DC June 24

Fellow Moroccan Americans,

The latest American census report indicates that the number of Moroccans residing in the United States exceeds 100,000.

In order to wield a persuasive voice that can influence policies affecting our lives, both in the US and in Morocco, we must fully exploit our growing presence to empower our community socially, economically, and politically.

With that vision in mind, a group of dedicated Moroccan American volunteers took the initiative to create a framework through which our combined ideas and collective experiences would be employed toward the most pressing issues facing us, including our territorial integrity.

Accordingly, we have the pleasure of inviting you to join this process, which we believe holds great promises for our community and for our beloved country of origin. We strongly encourage you to take part in this historic effort, at its inception, by attending our upcoming seminar. We ask you to add your voice to those of us who have already committed to attend. Please come prepared to share your thoughts and suggestions in the seminar.

Let us create an environment that allows Moroccan Americans to want to think and talk with each other, and to effectively plan and execute future strategies in a collective way.

Please join us in this momentous event to realize our common vision. A detailed program of the event will be sent shortly.
