YAMA Action is a 501c(4) driven to serve the Yemeni-American community through civic engagement, organizing and advocacy.
It is our belief that our community needs to amplify its voice to inform policies before they are formed. Our community requires a sustained effort of engagement that seeks long-term changes that reflect the values and positions of our community on the local, state and federal level.
Our staff are proactive in executing innovative and effective legislation, strategic messaging, and issue advocacy campaigns. We build our relationships with legislators, government agencies, executive departments, and thought leaders to improve policies on small business economic development, civil liberties, immigration, public safety and religious freedom for all Yemeni-Americans. Equally important, we build alliances and coalitions with diverse communities to encourage active engagement.
