Spotlight on nominee HIAS

Nominee HIAS: Welcome the stranger. Protect the refugee.

Next in our series of posts about new Charitocracy nominees, we have nominee HIAS, nominated by donor r.a.y.. They protect, advocate for, and help resettle refugees in the U.S. and beyond. You can find their web site here.

A few words on Charitocracy

Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!

About nominee HIAS


HIAS stands for a world in which refugees find welcome, safety, and freedom.


HIAS rescues people whose lives are in danger for being who they are.

  • We protect the most vulnerable refugees, helping them build new lives and reuniting them with their families in safety and freedom.
  • We advocate for the protection of refugees and assure that displaced people are treated with the dignity they deserve.

Guided by our Jewish values and history, we bring more than 130 years of expertise to our work with refugees.
