Kirt Lewis is passionate about our moral and patriotic duty to stand with Special Immigrant Visa holders as they seek safety and a new life in the U.S for themselves and their family members. This is rooted first and foremost in his own personal experience of having served overseas (Army; Iraq, 2003). Beyond his heart for the important work that No One Left Behind does, he brings seventeen years of experience working in the non-profit sector, including the last seven years with World Relief, one of the nine refugee resettlement agencies. During this time he served nationally as Senior Mobilization Specialist and more recently as the Director of World Relief Sacramento, which during his tenure was the second largest refugee resettlement office in the nation. He also played a key role in working with California state legislators to pass pro-SIV legislation in 2017. He is excited to be a part of the amazing team of NOLB staff and volunteers in welcoming and supporting Special Immigrant Visa holders and their families.
