OneAmerica is a vibrant and growing power-building organization that is committed to driving progressive social and political change for immigrants and refugees in Washington state. Given Washington state’s current political climate and the momentum of years of important victories led by our members and partners, Washington is poised to lead the nation in bold policy and social change that will ensure immigrant communities thrive. At OneAmerica we strive to build a culture of co-governance both inside and outside our organization: centering leaders who are most impacted by systemic oppression to identify and move strategic solutions. We work to hold our elected leaders accountable to this model of governance as well.
OneAmerica’s Civic Engagement Strategy seeks to strengthen the immigrant and refugee voting population in Washington State by: registering and directly contacting voters; interviewing and endorsing pro-immigrant, progressive candidates, and; engaging our base community in advocating for legislation that will strengthen our democracy.
