On the tail of President Joe Biden rescinding the Muslim, refugee and African Ban and on the eve of the anniversary of the bans first being announced in 2017, We Are All America and its partners have launched the Opportunity for All campaign.
Opportunity for All is a vibrant, national campaign - led by former refugees, asylees and immigrants - designed to shift social, political and economic conditions so that refugees can achieve their full potential and ensure America remains a nation of opportunity for those seeking freedom, safety and refuge in the United States. The campaign kicked off with a virtual panel discussion between refugee community leaders from across the country. Click here to watch!

"After organizing to push back against anti-Muslim and anti-refugee policies over the past four years, we are buoyed by the rapid rescission of the Muslim, refugee and African bans by the Biden administration on the first day of his Presidency," said Basma Alawee, chair of the campaign and former refugee from Iraq. "While the Administration is poised to increase refugee resettlement numbers to 125,000, we must also ensure that every person who calls America home has the social, economic, and political conditions to reach their full potential."
