Our Leadership

Our mission is to unleash the desire and capacity of people across America to welcome newcomers and help them thrive.

Honorary Co-chairs

Four former Presidents and four former First Ladies have joined us as partners in this effort, bringing Americans together in the common purpose of offering safety to those in need of refuge from war, violence, and persecution.

The Welcome Council

The Welcome Council includes a diverse group of leaders working to build a broad welcome movement. They share a common belief that welcoming newcomers is who we are at our best, and a commitment to lifting up that message in their communities.
