KAMA DC is a volunteer-run non-profit organization which creates a platform for immigrants in the greater Washington DC area to share their skills and stories. To apply for this opportunity, please fill out this google form:

KAMA DC's core group is made up of 15-20 volunteers who meet once a week on Wednesday evenings on zoom from 6:30-7:30pm. We are looking for at least two volunteers to join our promotion team to support both general promotion and the DC Immigration Film Festival! The promotions team is responsible for all external facing communications, including managing our social media accounts and website, designing graphics, creating videos, sending mailings, and conducting outreach. They also run the Immigrants of the DMV (@immigrantsoftheDMV) instagram account. KAMA DC will also be shortly be taking over the DC Immigration Film Festival for 2023. Responsibilities for volunteers working on this festival will be co-managing the film festival, reviewing films, leading social media and outreach announcements, etc. It is expected that volunteers in this position will devote about 50% of their time to general KAMA DC promotion duties and the other 50% of their time to supporting the DC Immigration Film Festival.
KAMA DC particularly encourages refugees, immigrants, and BIPOC to apply. Given the in-person requirements and nature of KAMA events, volunteers must live in Washington D.C., Maryland, or Virginia.

Mission Statement

KAMA DC aims to build community through immigrant-led cultural experiences.


KAMA DC is a grassroots organization in Washington DC which provides a platform for immigrants in the DMV area to share their skills and stories.

KAMA DC is run entirely by volunteers who are passionate about building ties, facilitating cultural exchanges, and starting conversations. We highlight the skills and stories that immigrants bring to our community by hosting skills based workshops, cooking classes, storytelling nights, film screenings, and more.

KAMA DC volunteers began to meet in 2016 and we held our first class in December 2016. We gained official 501(c) non-profit status in 2018.

The idea is simple: by allowing people to learn from each other, KAMA DC builds constructive contact between groups who rarely interact. We facilitate dialogue, mutual understanding, and empower instructors and course participants to build positive community relationships.
