Allen Morris

Policy Director


Washington, DC

Allen Morris

Allen (he/his/gladiator) was born and raised in Beaumont, TX. Graduate of Regent University School of Law (M.A.) and Grand Canyon University (B.S.), Allen is a Policy and Government Affairs gladiator with over a decade of broad-based public policy, immigration, criminal, and human rights experience across the legal, corporate, government, and non-profit sectors.

Before serving as the Policy Director, Allen worked in the Immigrant rights movement on various issues, such as ensuring access to legal counsel, permanent protections for LGBTQIA+ asylum seekers, and pushing Congress to pass comprehensive immigration legislation. Allen’s primary goal is collaborating with leaders to implement substantive change to ensure legislation that serves all in need of protection and permanent solutions is achieved. Allen brings an upbeat, positive perspective into the role of being a fearless advocate for directly impacted and historically marginalized people who are often silenced and pushed to the side. In his free time, he likes to watch space/NASA documentaries, The Golden Girls, and cuddling on the couch with his fur son.
