Thank you for your interest in volunteering. The Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights (NMCIR), is a non-profit organization, founded in 1982 to educate, defend and protect the rights of immigrants. Recognized by the Board of Immigration Appeals, NMCIR is committed to expanding access to legal immigration services, participating in policy making and community organizing. The Coalition Educates, Organizes and Defends the immigrant community.
Most of the individuals who walk through the doors of the Coalition are low-income, non-citizen immigrants from the Caribbean, Latin America, and increasingly, Africa and the Middle East. Some have lived in the U.S. for decades, others are recent immigrants. The Coalition is often their first entrée into accessing legal aid or basic social services.
Volunteers are a critical part of the work we do. NMCIR works with volunteers to help with citizenship drives, special events, English and Civics classes, as well as day-to-day running of the organization.
