The City is hosting its second-ever Arab American Heritage Month Series with a slate of events throughout the month of April. The series will be hosted by the Arabic-speaking Medford Connector, Charbel Hayek, and Community Liaison, Samira Hayek, from the Medford Community Engagement Team.  

The team is hosting three events throughout April to celebrate Arab American Heritage Month, and educate the community about traditions, history, music, food, and culture.

They are funded through a variety of grants, including the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) grant and aim to improve accessibility to City resources for all.
