Past Events / Events

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.

Learn how you can use the Welcoming Schools toolkit to pass resolutions and policies in your school district that will help protect immigrant and refugee families.

This toolkit provides students, parents, and community members with the information and tools they need to work with their schools to enact policies to ensure that all students, regardless of immigration status, are welcome, safe, and protected in the school environment. The toolkit includes sample resolutions and policies that can help keep children safe from immigration enforcement raids, protect student privacy, and affirm a commitment to acceptance and inclusiveness.

Support Tuition Equity!

Greater Reading Immigration Project (PICC Member)

Help raise awareness on Tuition Equity for Undocumented students! After a brief press conference in the Rotunda, participants will be breaking into groups to speak with representatives! This is a state bill, so we encourage everyone from all over the state to contact your representative and tell them you support Tuition Equity! For more information, RSVP on Facebook.

About Tuition Equity: Undocumented students who live in the US and attended school here are sometimes labeled as “international students” during the college admissions process. This they have to pay as much as 3 times the “in-county” or “in-state” tuition rate. Not only do they have to pay more, they also do not have access to Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) or most scholarships, making higher education inaccessible to these students.
