Cross Cultural Outreach

Fostering understanding and celebrating humanity

This program aims to break down racial barriers and perceptions by providing educational diversity workshops and cross cultural events that link Middle Eastern and Western cultures. We try to bridge the cultural gaps with the two regions by reaching out to students in high schools and universities through symposiums where we conduct open discussions about human rights and race relations.

Our ALO‐Hola and Cultural Diplomacy events unite corporations, media, government agencies, educational institutions, community leaders and social agencies to discuss diversity, acceptance and tolerance amongst nations with a focus on the Middle Eastern‐Americans including the Image, inclusion and understanding and bridging the gap between east and west. From our think tanks and symposiums, the framework is under construction to establish a map and social plan for world class tolerance.


ALO-HOLA ROUNDTABLES—The Foundation continues its march towards cultural unity and connecting cultures by hosting a series of roundtable discussions designed to bring the Latino and Middle Eastern communities closer. The Foundation joined with former Los Angeles Commissioner Mary Barrientos to reach to both communities in a strategic effort to foster cultural business relations and map plan for the youth to interact with influential decision makers.

The intimate roundtable has grown to full-fledged multi-community events with nearly 100 concerned leaders offering their opinions. Our work within the Middle Eastern-American communities has empowered us to seek, add and represent the variety of Latino and Latin American voices and heritage which closely mirror that of the Foundation’s core audience. This is the rare opportunity to think beyond today and allow the world to recognize the commonalities of our two groups. These are the first steps of fruitful cause, of which we can truly be proud.
