2023 General Election Endorsements

OneAmerica Votes is excited to announce our slate of pro-immigrant candidates for the 2023 Washington State General Election! We believe these candidates will work with us towards our vision of a thriving home –  a place where immigrants and refugees are equal, valued and loved. View a list of our full slate below!

We are excited to be supporting a powerful slate of candidates – the majority of which are leaders of color or immigrants themselves. We understand the importance needing to elect folks to office who will work with us to build the power we need to thrive. We’ve made key endorsements in King, Clark, Yakima, Pierce, Skagit AND Whatcom Counties! It’s exciting to see candidates who are deeply committed to our communities rise up to run for office across the state. 

Want to be part of an awesome canvassing group like the one pictured above from our field launch a few weeks ago? Well, you can! We will be hosting a variety of canvassing events in Burien, SeaTac, and Vancouver this election season. You can sign up here to help us get out the immigrant vote!
