Sundrop Carter is PICC's Organizing Director, responsible for coordinating PICC's advocacy and organizing work. Raised by hippie parents, Sundrop always knew she would be involved in social justice movements. She began her organizing career in Philadelphia with ACORN, then moved to Allentown, PA to open a new office. She then went to law school with the goal of bringing much-needed legal tools to her organizing practice. Before coming to PICC, Sundrop worked with organizations and activist projects supporting immigrant workers fighting for justice at their workplaces. Sundrop received her bachelor's degree in Comparative Politics from Clark University in Worcester, MA and her J.D. from Brooklyn Law School.

Maria Sotomayor is PICC's Civic Engagement & Community Outreach Coordinator, responsible for administering PICC's civic engagement, DACA outreach, and Pennsylvania Dream Act work.  Maria was born in Ecuador and raised in Pennsylvania. She is a DACA recipient. Coming from a mixed-status family and community impacted by the current immigration system, Maria hopes to educate and support immigrant communities to use their voice and power to change the system. Maria graduated from Neumann University in May 2013 with a BA in Psychology and minor in Communications. She dedicated her time at college to educating fellow students about immigration, serving as a liaison for the Keep the Dream Alive concert, Drop the I-word Campaign and raising funds for La Puerta Abierta’s Youth Mentorship Program where she has been a mentor and is a current Board member. Maria became involved with PICC in 2012 shortly after sharing her story at a PICC-organized event in Chester.
