Immigrants Are Los Angeles
The Immigrant Integration Task Force (IITF) is the foundational body for the Immigrants Are LA (IRLA) campaign, composed of over 100 immigrant rights and services organizations in Los Angeles County.

Those organizations include the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), Council of Mexican Federations in North America (COFEM), Inclusive Action for the City, Pilipino Workers Center, and the Translatin@ Coalition.
