New Citizens = New Voters Program:
Every week, the lives of hundreds of families are changed by becoming US Citizens. PICC believes that voting is one of the foundations of being an engaged citizen, so we attend every ceremony in Philadelphia to register new citizens to vote. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, voter registration at ceremonies is on hold until further notice.
Join us to engage with New Americans voters and ensure they are able to vote in November.
PICC will be hosting non-partisan voter education phone and text banks this fall to education new American voters about how to participate in November’s election. Our phone banking will be conducted remotely from the comfort of your home! We will train volunteers before the phone banks on how to use the virtual tools. Volunteers will need a tablet, computer, or laptop.
Sign up to call voters to provide information about in-person voting. Phone banks will be hosted from Friday, October 23, 2020 until Monday, November 2, 2020 from 5:30 PM- 8:30 PM. Sign up for a spot today!

Civic Engagement Internship:
PICC’s Civic Engagement Internship centers on non-partisan voter registration of new citizens and civic engagement of registered voters, as part of a long-term strategy to increase electoral power in immigrant communities. Interns help to coordinate the New Citizens=New Voters program. The internship is a minimum of 10 weeks.
