What We Do

The California Immigrant Policy Center (CIPC) is a leading statewide immigrant rights organization that advocates for policies that protect and advance the rights of immigrants and their families throughout California. CIPC combines policy advocacy, strategic communications, statewide organizing, and regional coalition capacity building to pursue its mission of advocating for policies that uphold the humanity of immigrants while advancing racial, social, and economic justice.

For the past 25 years, CIPC has played a central role in advancing a progressive statewide immigrant justice agenda. In that time, CIPC helped pass 30 pro-immigrant laws in the state, including: The Safe and Responsible Driver Act, the TRUST Act, the One California initiative, the E-Verify Bill and the Health for All Kids and Health for All 50+, among others — signature legislative accomplishments propelled by the organization’s ability to coordinate, convene and mobilize a broad and diverse array of advocates towards a common goal.
