  • Saturday, September 13, 2014 - 10:00am - 4:00pm

    PICC is committed to building power for immigrant communities so that we can pass legislation like the PA Dream Act or the driver's license bill, and change local policies like the recent executive order ending ICE holds in Philadelphia. 

    A key part of building political power is educating and mobilizing voters to talk to their legislators and get out to the polls. The more that immigrant communities and allies get out to vote, the more that politicians will listen to our voices!

    This is a FREE event!
