The National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), a program of ACCESS, and its Campaign to TAKE ON HATE are among 25 advocacy groups calling on The Coca-Cola Company to dissociate from political conventions where hateful rhetoric and bigotry would be highlighted and praised.
In the last few months, candidates for public office have repeatedly disparaged Latino, Muslim, Arab and Black communities, as well as women, LGBT people and people with disabilities.

The National Network for Arab American Communities and its Campaign to TAKE ON HATE are shocked by today’s bombings in Brussels, Belgium. With similar attacks in Ankara, Turkey and Paris, France in recent months, the world has seen an increase in terrorist activity. We do not believe that violence is ever justifiable, nor is it the answer to combating hateful acts.Read more
