We help U.S. citizens who have married foreign nationals make an impact on Capitol Hill.

American Families United is a non-partisan 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. Established in 2006, we are the leading voice on legislation to help our community. Our work is primarily focused on family unity and tax fairness issues.

You can help us by:

  • Subscribing to our emails - to be ready to take action when needed, you will also receive periodic updates.
  • Requesting a meeting to talk to your representatives and tell you or a loved one's story. A member of AFU will help you prepare for the meeting and also attend to support you. 
  • You can volunteer in a variety of ways.
  • You can sign our petition
  • Help us raise money to cover our costs by donating 
  • Becoming part of our Circle of Hope with a monthly donation as low as $5/month. 

Examples of our work include:

On average, every dollar donated to American Families United has helped at least one family.
If you or someone you care about is a U.S. citizen who faces the specter of family separation, you need us and we need you.

America needs answers now. More than 1 million U.S. citizens and their spouses and children have been separated or risk separation.

With your support as a donor or volunteer, we aim to expand training, outreach, and constituent mobilization programs to bring the faces and stories of these families to Capitol Hill and to the public.

More than any time in the past 20 years, people are listening to immigration issues, and legislators are looking for solutions. In this once in a generational opportunity to improve the lives of people so close to you, where do you want to be when the train leaves the station?
