The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights is a mission-driven social justice organization for and of the immigrant communities of Illinois. Founded in 1986, ICIRR is composed of more than 100 dues paying organizations, the largest immigrant coalition in Illinois. Membership is broad-based and includes community-organizing groups, ethnic associations, unions, refugee organizations, faith congregations, and direct service organizations that work with diverse immigrant communities.
ICIRR’s mission is to promote the full and equal participation of immigrants and refugees in the political, civic and economic life of our diverse society. In partnership with our member organizations, ICIRR educates and organizes immigrant and refugee communities to assert their rights; promotes citizenship and civic participation; monitors, analyzes, and advocates on immigrant-related issues; and, informs the general public about the contributions of immigrants and refugees.
