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. The IITF has been convening in LA County for ten years and has played a key role in the implementation of countywide, large-scale initiatives to promote and expand access to critical programs and immigration legal services such as DACA, Unaccompanied Minors, Driver’s Licenses (AB60), and Citizenship.

The IRLA campaign is led by a Steering Committee made up of six immigrant-serving organizations. 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.
