OneAmerica is a Seattle-based nonprofit whose mission is to advance the fundamental principles of democracy and justice by building power in immigrant communities.

OneAmerica was established in 2001 by U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal and has since grown to become a locally and nationally recognized leader in advancing immigrant, civil, and human rights.

Our family of organizations consists of OneAmerica (501(c)3), OneAmerica Votes (501(c)4), OAV Justice for All PAC (federal PAC) and OneAmerica Votes Justice Fund (PAC).

Our work today is more important than ever. We are fighting attacks on immigrant communities while advancing a pro-active, pro-immigrant agenda.

OneAmerica is growing and becoming stronger to meet our current political challenges.
