Reception: 5:30 pm
Program: 6:30 pm
The Westin, Seattle
With OneAmerica leading the way, people like us have created a movement to claim and embrace our power – in our local communities, leading our organizations and businesses, and in our government. When people like us stand together, we build power. That means people power, power in our ideas for a better world, and the power of organized resources. That’s what the OneAmerica family of organizations is all about, and that’s what our OneAmerica community joyously works for. Join us for a night to celebrate people like us, all we’ve accomplished, and everything we will accomplish together.
Unable to attend? Sponsor a OneAmerica leader’s ticket and become a “raincheck sponsor” by making a gift in lieu of your attendance. Make a gift by March 15th and your name will be included on the list of raincheck sponsors at the gala.
For almost two decades, we have worked to ensure that immigrants and refugees have a seat at the table – or a microphone at a rally in the street – to help shape the policies that impact our communities. And on Friday, April 5th, our communities will take the stage to describe the power and triumph of their struggle.
OneAmerica welcomes Enrique Cerna as our emcee for the evening, who will be introducing our dynamic performers: Naomi Wachira, Tiwanna Kenney, and our dance party DJ, Jenn Green.
Aneelah Afzali, executive director of the Muslim Association for Puget Sound’s newly-launched American Muslim Empowerment Network (MAPS-AMEN), will be giving an inspiring keynote on the power of immigrant communities.
