SSIP is committed to community organizing for the rights of immigrants in the southwest suburbs of Chicago through education, civic engagement, and advocacy. SSIP envisions a suburban immigrant community that is organized and ready to tackle community challenges.
Civic Engagement: We prepare community and allies to participate in the systems of local, state and national politics, organize citizenship workshops, and non-partisan voter registration drives.
