Since 1975 when he first traveled to Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and
the Palestinian areas as part of a team of university

Princeton University and Lehigh University.
Dr. James J. Zogby is founder and president of the Arab American Institute (AAI), a Washington, D.C.-based organization which
serves as the political and policy research arm of the Arab
American community. Since 1985, Dr. Zogby and AAI have led Arab
American efforts to secure political empowerment in the U.S.
Through voter registration, education and mobilization, AAI has
moved Arab Americans into the political mainstream.
For the past three decades,
Dr. Zogby has been involved in a full range of Arab American
issues. A co-founder and chairman of the Palestine Human Rights
Campaign in the late 1970s, he later co-founded and served as
the Executive Director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination
Committee. In 1982, he co-founded Save Lebanon, Inc., a private
non-profit, humanitarian and non-sectarian relief organization
which funds health care for Palestinian and Lebanese victims of
war, and other social welfare projects in Lebanon. In 1985,
Zogby founded AAI.
