Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition

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.

Pennsylvania is home to one of three immigrant family detention centers in the country, and the only publicly-owned one. Governor Wolf has known for two years that his administration could remove families from the abuse and neglect that they have been enduring in the Berks County Family Detention Center. The Governor’s administration has done the bare minimum to right the immoral and illegal detention of immigrant families.

The United Church of Christ Pennsylvania Southeast Conference will lead this month’s vigil. Please join us as we continue to lift our voices for the individuals who continue to be detained in the Berks County Detention Center. Follow the Shut Down Berks Interfaith Witness and the Shut Down Berks Coalition on Facebook to get updates on events.

Help Bensalem Resist 287g

BuxMonth Inclusive and Progressive, Make the Road PA (PICC Member), PICC

The recent announcement made by Bensalem’s Public Safety Director, Fred Harran, that Bensalem Police Department has applied to be part of 287g program, in which local police are trained to act as immigration officers, is alarming. Collaboration of local police with ICE opens townships to legal liability, encourages intolerance, and drives immigrant families away. Already, there has been an increase in racial profiling incidents in Bensalem. Community leaders will be speaking out against 287g at the Council Meeting. More information on the event and background on 287g on the Facebook event.
