You know something is amiss in an organization when controversy seems to constantly dominate the public discourse about it. That has been the conversation in recent months in many circles in Washington about the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), the largest civil rights organization for Arab-Americans, which is mired today in a sexual harassment scandal triggering resignations and layoffs inside the group.
Al Arabiya News has conducted thorough interviews with the main players involved, some of whom spoke out for the first time since the scandal broke last May. They explained their position, the controversial role of ADC’s board, and where do they see the organization headed after firing the head of communications, then the resignation of four women and most recently placing the President on probation.
