What I want from AlNadwa FTS

Expectation:

I expect from Alnadwa, Free Thinking Society, to be a place where people who care about culture and innovation, and who believe in critical thinking and diversity, are able to interact promote, and express their opinions, ideas, views, poetry, prose, literature and/or any creative output that entertains or serve the betterment of human being, community, and society. Since we belong, and we live in the middle of an Arab American community, so it is a natural inclination to address and deal with our own cultural component of our identity. However, doors are open to contributors from different backgrounds, because, their input will enrich our goal.

The socio-economic and cultural conditions of our community are in need of such organization. Arabic American public is always receptive to the cultural functions, since it is imbued by the love of poetry and literatures. Having many organizations that held poetry reading and other cultural events in our community encourages us to add Alnadwa because we feel that many issues and a huge space are not covered, yet waiting to be addressed among them:

1- Creating and interaction ground between the Arab-American community and the Arab world, thru inviting creators and innovators in different fields, such function is in need of financing which we should address.

2- Provide a platform that will not censor the freedom of expression, as most newcomers have been accustomed in their country of origin.

3-Being tolerant to different and diverse ideas in order to encourage interactions and vivid discussions among members and audience, however our limit is bounded by the charter of common human values proposed by ( Declaration for universal values. )

4-Guaranteeing a democratic procedures in the organizations, and having a total respect for diverse opinions, along with respecting the bylaws ,and practicing secret ballot voting , and transparency in handling all kind of affairs, from budgeting to communications and public relations, are keys for sustainability of the organization and its goals.
