National Day to Stop Separating Families
Over 150 immigrant families and allies gathered at York County Prison on Saturday, June 28th to demand an end to unjust deportations.

The Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition (PICC) is a diverse coalition of over 50 member organizations and hundreds of individual members. Our membership is interfaith, interethnic and interdisciplinary and includes community groups, service providers, mutual assistance associations, unions, faith communities, concerned individuals and immigrant groups of different backgrounds to share information and resources, identify common problems, and advocate for solutions.

We believe that immigrants, refugees and other new Americans make significant contributions to our nation, state, region, and our local communities. They pay taxes in our local economy, revitalize neighborhoods as renters and home owners, consumers and business owners, and bring a rich cultural diversity.Our mission is to represent the needs of immigrants, migrants, refugees and other New Americans living in Pennsylvania to policy makers, public officials and the general public. We seek to advance immigrants’ rights and to promote their full integration into society by advocating for fair policies that welcome and sustain immigrants.

F4F PICCPICC relies on volunteers and interns to sustain our work. All volunteers must attend a 1-hour orientation, held weekly at our offices.

If you are interested in interning with PICC, please contact us to arrange an interview.
