OneAmerica was founded in the wake of 9/11 to counter the backlash in Washington state directed against Middle Easterners, East Africans, South Asians, Muslims, Sikhs, and other immigrants and minorities. It has since grown to become the largest immigrant advocacy organization in Washington state and a national leader in its field. OneAmerica trains and works with targeted immigrant and minority communities to increase collaboration, civic participation, and advocacy to advance policy reform and the principles of democracy, justice, and human rights at the local, state, and national levels. This general support grant is co-funded with the National Security and Human Rights Campaign for a total of $200,000.
