ALEX ODEH FUND
On October 11, 1985, Alex Odeh ADC’s Southern California Regional Director was killed when a powerful pipe bomb exploded as he unlocked and opened the door of the ADC office in Santa Ana, California. Alex, a published poet, lecturer of Arabic Language and Middle East history at Coastline College in Santa Ana, and tireless peace activist, dedicated his life to the defense of civil liberties at home, and civil and human rights abroad. The FBI’s case into Alex Odeh’s murder remains open, with a reward of up to $1 million for information leading to an arrest and conviction. However, no arrest has yet been made. ADC remembers Alex and continues to reinforce its demand that those responsible for his murder be brought to justice.
