PICC Updates

  • The Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition seeks a full time Civic Engagement Coordinator to manage PICC’s non-partisan voter registration and GOTV work. The ideal candidate has a strong commitment to social, racial, and economic justice movements, is results oriented, enjoys working with a team, and has a demonstrated ability to work with a diverse array of stakeholders.

  • The Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition (PICC) is excited to launch a search for a new Executive Director. Over the last few years, PICC has expanded its reach across the state, doubled its annual budget and accumulated a series of successes on behalf of immigrants in Pennsylvania. PICC’s success has increased demand for additional staffing and we are looking to add an innovative and energetic leader to our team. 

  • PICC coordinates targeted, non-partisan, voter registration and get-out-the-vote (GOTV) programs to close the voting gap among immigrant voters. We have already registered more than 25,000 immigrants to vote! Through the work of PICC staff, volunteers and partners, these programs have greatly increased the turnout rate of immigrant communities:

  • Over 150 immigrant families and allies from Philadelphia, West Chester, Norristown, Gettysburg, Hanover, Reading, York and Lancaster gathered in front of the York county Prison on Saturday to call for an end to unjust deportations. Several families from West Chester and Norristown shared their stories, and afterward we marched around the facility singing and chanting.

  • While Obama's new policy of "Deferred Action"  is a positive step in immigration reform, don't be scammed! Learn the policy details and eligibility requirements today!

  • Today, PICC and our allies particpated in a public hearing chaired by Councilman Kenney on immigration reform and the benefits of the Pennsylvania Compact.

  • This morning, a handful of state legislators in Harrisburg will announce an anti-immigrant bill modeled on Arizona's new law.
