Working together for Palestine Tips for Building Teamwork
The American Federation of Ramallah, Palestine (AFRP) has approved the National Palestine Cultural Day as one of its activities on the national level. This event will be initiated and directed by AFRP and local clubs nationwide with guidelines set by the AFRP committee shown below. The AFRP has appointed Nadia Mashni as National Chairman and Co-Chairs Samir Totah of San Francisco, George Adib Khoury of Detroit and Afif Baba of San Francisco. This committee is extra-ordinary and committed to the success of the Annual National Palestine Cultural Day. It is to be noted that San Francisco is celebrating their 36th year of bringing the Arab Communities together for one great cause.
We hope we can count on you here in Detroit and in all states to help in this wonderful event.
