Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition

Community-Based Civic Engagement Training (Harrisburg)

Date: Sep 15 2018, 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Location: St. Francis of Assisi Church, 1439 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17103

The capacity to educate, organize and engage voters in our work for immigrant justice is indispensable to our ability to win concrete policy changes at all levels of government. PICC member organizations recognize the value of civic engagement and desire to build their capacity to engage citizens in a way that continues to center the leadership of immigrants and refugees. In response, PICC is partnering with FIRM to host a daylong training for our partners to learn how immigrant rights organizations can utilize traditional voter engagement tools to advance issue-based campaigns. Participants will be trained on:

  • The basics of a civic engagement field plan and will be coached on how to create one
  • Volunteer recruitment and management
  • Effective strategies for initial and sustained contact with voters through canvassing, phone banking, and other means.
