What is Welcoming America?

Welcoming America is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that provides the roadmap and support institutions need to become more inclusive toward immigrants and all other residents.

Why do we think this organization is important?

Democracy Fund Voice is committed to supporting voices across the political spectrum who stand up for our democratic norms and institutions. We believe in the dignity of every individual and in the equal protection of their rights under the law.

Welcoming America works to build a movement of inclusive communities by bringing together a network of local governments and nonprofits through an innovative social change model. Founded in 2009, Welcoming America connects local communities with training, resources, national leaders (including Congress), and networks to create initiatives that help motivate policy, reinforce welcoming principles, and communicate the socioeconomic benefits of inclusion.

How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting Welcoming America?

In 2018, Democracy Fund Voice approved one grant to Welcoming America, in the amount of up to $50,000 over one year.
