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.
