Response to H2O Man (Original post)

31. On the topic of the movement bringing forth leadership.

I'd like to point out a bright spot that fits here - the election of Pramila Jayapal to McDermott's Washington State House seat.

She comes from a grass roots and community organizing background and I think she will be one to watch and support in 2017.

During the dark years of Bush Jr., she organized and advocated for immigrant rights. She pulled people together to advocate for rights during that challenging and dark time of edicts like the Patriot Act and the push into the Iraq war.

She didn't give up, but instead organized and built an organization that continues that fight.

Pramila Jayapal, OneAmerica Founder and Executive Director, has announced she will step down from leading OneAmerica in the spring of 2012.

Ten years ago, in the wake of 9/11, Pramila gathered some concerned community members to address the backlash against immigrant communities of color. A decade later, OneAmerica has grown into the largest immigrant advocacy organization in Washington State and a leading force for immigrant rights nationally.

OneAmerica board and staff thank Pramila for providing her visionary leadership and unyielding commitment to social justice in helping create a powerful, sustainable, and ever-growing organization that impacts so many residents across the state.

Please see statements below from Pramila and OneAmerica Board President Luis Fraga on her announcement. For more on Pramila's incredible leadership and OneAmerica's transition plan and our search for a new Executive Director, see below.



Now we in Washington State are sending her to DC and I look forward to seeing the work she can do with allies in Congress.
