Arab-American SWANA Writers Emergency Relief

COVID-19 has hit artistic communities hard, as many writers and artists lack job security and access to healthcare, and depend upon freelance and temporary work to make a living and support themselves and their families. Please help us support members of the Arab-American/SWANA writing community for whom the pandemic has caused financial hardship. All funds will be administered by the Radius of Arab-American Writers, a national nonprofit organization, and 100% of donations distributed directly to individuals with a self-declared need for emergency relief.

Established in 1993, RAWI is a national organization that provides mentoring, community, and support for Arab American writers and those with roots in the Arabic speaking world and the diaspora. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) literary organization dedicated to supporting and disseminating creative writing and scholarly writing by Arab Americans and those from the Arabic speaking world–which often means creating space and highlighting voices and people threatened by erasure.
