About the We Are All America Campaign In 2017, a powerful alliance of national organizations combined strengths to establish the We Are All America Campaign, which aimed to respond to the willful destruction of the U.S. refugee resettlement program and the heightened anti-refugee, anti-asylum and anti-Muslim narratives influencing political decision making and public opinion. Since then, the campaign has worked to build state level leadership and constituencies in support of refugees, asylum seekers, and our nation’s traditions as a nation of immigrants, of religious tolerance, and of refuge from violence and persecution. This dynamic, collective field now represents the largest national grassroots organizing effort on behalf of refugees and asylees in the nation -- largely composed of organizers who, themselves, have come to the US as refugees and asylees and are overwhelmingly Middle Eastern, African, and / or Muslim Americans.

Campaign Leadership: Current national Steering Committee member organizations include Alianza Americas, Church World Service, Human Rights First, International Rescue Committee, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, National Partnership for New Americans, the Refugee Advocacy Lab, Refugee Congress, Refugee Council USA, and Welcoming America. In 2020, We Are All America added five state field organizations to the campaign’s leadership, ensuring a connection between national and state leaders. These include Campaign for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), Florida Immigrant Coalition, New York Immigration Coalition, Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC), and Unite Oregon.

Position Description: The We Are All America Campaign Manager is responsible for implementing nationally coordinated action to build support nationally and locally for refugees and asylum seekers, and to push back against anti-refugee, anti-asylee, anti-Muslim hate.
