Welcome to PICC's Website!

The Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition is a diverse coalition of more than 50 member organizations and hundreds of individuals.  Our mission is to represents the needs of immigrants, migrants, refugees and other new Americans living in Pennsylvania to policy makers, public officials, and the general public.  We seek to advance immigrants' rights and to promote their full integration into society by advocating for fair policies that welcome and sustain immigrants.  PICC brings together community groups, social and legal service providers, mutual assistance associations, unions, faith communities, immigrant leaders and concerned individuals to share knowledge, identify problems and work together to promote solutions. 

Immigrants make significant economic, civic, and cultural contributions to Pennsylvania. Click here to read more. 

Need an immigration lawyer? PICC does not provide legal services for immigrants and refugees. Please refer to our legal services resource page for providers in Pennsylvania and other helpful information. 

Each year, PICC volunteers help thousands of new citizens register to vote. We are always interested in finding more volunteers! Click here to find out more information about volunteering with PICC's Civic Engagement Project.
