Palm Beach County Coalition for Immigrant Rights (PBCCIR)

We are working locally to build a diverse, politically-conscious coalition to organize and build a powerful base of people who will be able to lead and mobilize responses to the issues that immigrants face, educate our community about the misconceptions and contributions of immigrants in the US, and influence public policy. We do this through three working subcommittees: Protection, Education, and Legislation. We are most proud of being part of the 10,000 people immigrant march in Lake Worth in 2006, the creation of a Comité de Defensa de Barrio after an immigration raid in 2010, and the mass mobilizations to Tallahassee to fight anti-immigrant bills in 2011.
