The Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition (PICC) is a diverse coalition of over 50 member organizations and hundreds of individual members. Our membership includes community groups, mutual assistance associations, nonprofit social and legal service providers, advocacy organizations, labor unions, faith communities, community leaders and concerned individuals. Our mission is to advance immigrants’ rights and promote immigrants’ full integration into society by advocating with a unified voice for greater public understanding and welcoming public policies throughout Pennsylvania.
Through coalitions and taskforces, PICC leads and supports campaigns to advance immigrant rights at the local, state and federal levels, and to ensure effective implementation of pro-immigrant public policies. PICC builds immigrant electoral power through voter registration, turnout and citizenship promotion and provides information, training and leadership development to immigrant communities and immigrant-serving organizations.
