PICC organizes and co-sponsors many events including lobby days, public actions, educational trainings, citizenship days and member meetings. Below are upcoming and recent PICC and PICC member organization events.
PICC is committed to supporting the leadership development of immigrant and refugee community members and building the capacity of our member organizations and allies to advance immigrant rights by providing regular trainings and developing community education materials. Beginning in 2017, PICC began hosting the #StoptheHate Educational Webinars to provide allies and advocates regular information about changing immigration policies and tools to engage in local, state, and federal level advocacy efforts. Starting in March 2020, the newly named PICC Educational Webinar Series continues offering monthly webinars on current policies and advocacy campaigns.
Join advocates from around the state who are working to stop all anti-immigrant legislation in PA and to pass pro-immigrant policies at the municipal and state levels. This month’s topic will be Story of Self & Storytelling.
WHEN: Friday, May 8th, noon-1pm
WHERE: Free Zoom Webinar

Shut Down Berks Coalition
Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services have the power to issue an Emergency Removal Order on the Berks County Detention Center, an action that would ensure the facility can no longer be used as a prison. It is not only their moral obligation to keep families out of jail but their legal responsibility. FAMILY DETENTION IS BREAKING STATE LAW.
Call the Governor and tell him he must take immediate action to #ShutDownBerks!
