IOM’s Non-profit in the United States Relaunches as ‘USA for IOM’

Almost 30 years after its creation, The US Association for International Migration, USAIM, announced on International Migrants Day (12/18) that it has officially changed its name to USA for IOM.

Since 1988, USA for IOM, established in Washington, DC, has aimed to serve as a relay between the American public and populations affected by wars, conflicts and natural disasters around the world.

Over the past six months, USA for IOM has undertaken an extensive rebranding effort to increase its outreach to the American public and focus re-centre its fundraising and awareness-raising efforts on three main areas: response to humanitarian crises, natural disaster induced displacement, and human trafficking and response to emergency crises.

“With more than 65 million forcibly displaced individuals around the world, we are looking to partner with civil society and the private sector in the US to respond to today’s humanitarian challenges,” said Luca Dall’Oglio, CEO of USA for IOM.

USA for IOM’s main mission is to provide an opportunity to the American public to support the UN Migration Agency’s relief efforts in the world. In the coming weeks, USA for IOM will primarily raise awareness and fundraise for two ongoing crises: the exploitation of African migrants in Libya and the Rohingya refugee crisis.
