OneAmerica is an immigrant advocacy organization based in Seattle, WA whose mission is to advance the fundamental principles of democracy and justice at the local, state and national levels by building power within immigrant communities in collaboration with key allies. Founded in the wake of September 11, 2001, OneAmerica has grown to become a locally and nationally recognized leader in furthering immigrant, civil and human rights.

This is in a time of growth and opportunity for the organization as we build and strengthen our responses to a culture of emboldened racism and xenophobia within our state and our nation and turn to building the social and political power of immigrants and refugees in Washington State. As we implement our strategic plan to center grassroots leadership development in our strategy, we are not only working to defend the rights and liberties of our communities but to turn our attention to building the leaderships and power of our communities across the state to be in the driver’s seat of leading local state and national campaigns.

One of our biggest challenges in this moment is remaining bold about our vision for immigrants and refugees and also being strategic around how to focus and contain our programs and strategy. We are looking for staff to join our team who are adaptable and excited about leading change, are highly motivated around problem solving and lead with a focus on relationships, collaboration and racial equity. Given the time of immense change, we are looking for leaders who are comfortable with ambiguity and are exciting about the opportunity to develop and build a strategy and plan
