Our Work


Immigrants and refugees are our family, neighbors, classmates and friends, and are an integral part of our region. They should be welcomed and treated with dignity and respect. The San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium (SDIRC) advocates for policies that advance the human and civil rights of immigrants and refugees on the local, state and federal levels, and monitors the implementation of local and state policies in San Diego County.
