2021 Pennsylvania Immigrant & Refugee Rights Convening

Join for PICC’s 5th Annual Pennsylvania Immigrant and Refugee Rights Convening on June 5-6, 2021.

Just five months after the new Administration takes seat in the White House and Congress, join us to reflect on the year and build collective power with PICC partner organizations and communities to fight for the policies we need.

This Convening will bring together members of the immigrant and refugee communities, grassroots organizations, advocates, and allies from across the state, and will includes live virtual workshops, networking sessions, and opportunities to meet with legislators to discuss the issues impacting our immigrant and refugee communities.

Please visit 2021 PA Immigrant & Refugee Rights Convening page for registration, program, and sponsorship.

Immigration Reform Virtual Town Hall: Pathway to Citizenship for All 11 Million!

New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia - Nuevo Movimiento Santuario

On Monday, June 28th, we will host a Town Hall where different immigrant communities and their allies, faith communities and organizations will gather to call on Sen Casey and SE Pennsylvania Representatives to act. The House is scheduled to vote on the budget reconciliation bill on the first week of July, and they need to hear from immigrant communities before that vote. We need them to not only support a pathway for all 11 million in the budget reconciliation, but to take leadership and publicly push for this legislation.
It is time Congress and President Biden deliver on their promises and provide all 11 million people who are undocumented with a path to citizenship that leaves no one behind. Democrats control the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate. History shows us the Democrats will lose one of the chambers of Congress in the midterms, and politicians are hesitant to take up immigration legislation on an election year. This is the year to act.
