According to their website, the Florida Immigrant Coalition (FLIC) is “a statewide coalition of more than 65 member organizations and over 100 allies… with a global, multi-lingual, pro-Black vision and practice of grassroots feminism, and non-patriarchal governing power and culture.” Their mission is to “transform culture and shift power to make Florida a true home for all.” In other words, to take power away from Whites and give it to immigrants, and to transform our culture to reflect that of our replacements in order to make Florida a home for everyone except Whites.
Some of their listed victories include in-state college tuition for undocumented students and successfully blocking various legislative attempts to advance an “anti-immigrant agenda” in Florida. More than 6,000 permanent residents became naturalized citizens with FLIC’s support, and close to 60,000 new voters in Florida were registered by FLIC. They provide pro-bono legal aid, educational courses, and cash assistance to immigrants to support them through every step of the process of becoming a citizen.
The University Without Walls (UWW), their core leadership development program includes:
- “Community Organizing School’ (8 hrs), covering storytelling techniques, one-on-one basis, building winning campaigns, and digital organizing
- ‘Community Protection School’ (8 hrs), covering know-your-rights workshops, welcoming resolutions, the path to power, and circles of protection
- ‘Political Education School’ (8 hrs), covering root causes of migration, gender equity, and LGBTQ rights, ideology, and anti-blackness, racism and white supremacy”
FLIC also hosts two legal clinics in partnership with local organizations and law practitioners. Their “Know Your Rights” clinic provides training and free legal consultation regarding prospective and/or pending immigration cases. Over 260,000 immigrants have participated in the last few years. During their “Naturalization Clinics”, community members can access free or low-cost naturalization support.
