    Safety for women, teenagers and children starts in the home and community, not at the police station or on the courthouse steps.  Please join District Attorney Seth Williams, members of his office and other partners to discuss ways to make you and your family safer.

    There will be workshops guided by experts in fields including internet safety for your teenager, avoiding and escaping domestic violence, and the risks presented to our teenagers and young women by the scourge of Human Trafficking. There will even be a workshop where police officers will teach you effective self defense techniques.

    Space is limited so please register today on this website to attend.  You don't want to miss out!  While you may register at the door, you may not get your first choices for workshops.

    On October 5, immigrant communities and their allies will be holding marches and rallies in over 60 cities across the country calling for just and humane immigration reform with a pathway citizenship, legal immigration rules that promote family unity and protect worker rights, an end to the destruction of our families through deportations, and a halt to the rush towards massive wasteful spending on unneeded border militarization and for profit immigrant detention prisons.

    Here in Pennsylvania, join Pennsylvania United for Immigration Reform (PUIR) for a rally at LOVE Park calling for immigration reform that promotes family unification, followed by a march to the ICE offices to demand an end to deportations.

    Councilwoman Sanchez has been a vocal proponent of comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) and spearheaded Philadelphia's own resolution in support of CIR with Councilman Kenney. She has also written the local Land Bank Bill which calls for the creation of a fair, transparent, and accountable Land Bank in Philadelphia, a proposal HIAS Pennsylvania strongly supports as a vehicle to promote gardening projects for immigrants and refugees.

     

     

  • 8/1/2013 5:00pm to 7:00pm

  • 7/25/2013 5:00pm to 8/29/2013 8:00pm

    The Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition (PICC) is running weekly phone banks to garner collective action on comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) each Thursday.

    The CIR bill has moved from the Senate to the House - an exciting move forward but not the end of the debate by any means! Lend your support and bring your friends to help make the call and bring immigration reform into reality.

    If you are interested in joining us, register below so we can get a headcount.

    Guests are encouraged to bring a laptop or iPad.
