Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center

The Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center (PIRC) works to provide access to justice for vulnerable immigrants in detention and in the community through legal services, education and advocacy:

  • Access to justice begins with an understanding of individual rights under law. PIRC educates immigrants in detention and in the community about their legal options.
  • PIRC provides access to justice through legal services – direct representation, coordination of pro bono legal assistance, and pro se assistance.
  • PIRC advocates for greater capacity and systems change through language access assistance, partnerships with law schools and universities, and legal training and education.
