Campaign advances conversation on immigrants and citizens working together against COVID-19
(Arlington – VA) This week, a diverse group of coalition partners united to launch the #AllOfUs campaign to advance a positive conversation around the idea that all of us – citizens and immigrants – are in this battle against COVID-19 together.
This pandemic is impacting every aspect of our lives, changing how we live, work, learn, and engage with our community.
The best, and perhaps the only, way to conquer the coronavirus is for #AllOfUS to work together – with people from all walks of life contributing in whatever way they can.
As this crisis develops, Americans, regardless of where we were born, are standing shoulder to shoulder, and all of our contributions to the economy and society are more indispensable than ever.
From the health care sector to the service industry to agriculture, immigrants, are responding to, helping contain, and supporting us all through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Together, we can help bring out the best in our country – and one another – at a time when that can make the biggest difference.
Founding Members include: José Andrés, Stand Together, the George W. Bush Institute, Postmates, the National Association of Evangelicals, the NAACP, The Libre Initiative, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the National Immigration Forum, the Emerson Collective, and UnidosUS.

Jorge Lima, VP of Immigration for Stand Together, and Daniel Garza, President of The LIBRE Initiative, released the following joint statement:
“America’s ability to navigate crisis has always relied on the inclusivity and resiliency of her communities – individuals and families from all walks of life working together to face any great challenge. The COVID-19 pandemic is no exemption. The countless examples of immigrants and non-immigrants contributing side by side on the frontlines to battle this pandemic is a sign of our nation’s hope and strength. We are all in this together, no matter our background, and together is how we will recover.
