Rise of the Arab American Left

The chapter explores how a transnational Arab American political consciousness played out on the local level in a series of inter-related developments in Dearborn, Michigan, starting with a movement to fight the city’s plans to destroy a working-class, immigrant neighborhood called the Southend, the creation of ACCESS, an Arab American community center, and a movement to protest the United Auto Workers’ investments in Israeli bonds. Tied to these activities was the activism of the Arab Workers Caucus that combined struggles for workplace justice and justice for Palestine.
