Pride • Heritage • Culture • Accomplishment

american lebanese flagFrom the time that our Lebanese ancestors first stepped ashore in the United States, struggling to establish themselves economically and culturally in a new land, the American – Lebanese legacy has been one of pride, heritage, culture and accomplishment.

Through tireless effort and enterprise, they transcended barriers of poverty, language and cultural difference to create a community in which we could achieve our highest aspirations.

Hard work made for success. Visions of a limitless future inspired sacrifice to educate their children. Love of their rich cultural heritage prompted them to preserve their customs to pass on to future generations.

The American Lebanese Awareness Association was founded in 1984 to maintain that proud legacy.
