LAW ENFORCEMENT ACCOUNTABILITY
In August 2016, New England Arab American Organization played a very essential role in restoring trust and safety within the Arab immigrants’ community and especially Muslims who received on August 17, 2016 a threat letter. New England Arab American Organization engaged in building a collaborative effort with the Westbrook City Officials and the Westbrook Police chief to rise above fear. Together we were stronger and in unity we restored safety to the lives of Muslim families living in Westbrook. By building coalition, the law was enforced and presently, NEAAO is the leader in outreaching the community and being the voice of immigrants for social justice and equality.
