About We Are All America

We organize people across religious and cultural differences to build inclusive communities where we all belong.
Over the past several years, WAAA has led the emergence of an effective national organizing infrastructure that can mobilize public support for people fleeing violence and persecution, counter nativist forces, and develop more welcoming policies and practices in this area at the federal and state levels.
