The Long Beach Immigrant Rights Coalition (LBIRC) is a community-based organization of individuals and organizations with a mission to work for more humane, just, and pragmatic immigration policies and practices at local, statewide and national levels and for a city that welcomes, integrates, and empowers its immigrant members. Toward the goals of immigrant integration and empowerment, LBIRC works for and with immigrants, the children of immigrants, and members of mixed (immigration) status families. We focus particularly on those immigrants or children of immigrants who are most marginalized including those who are low income, undocumented and/or of limited English proficiency. LBIRC is the only local organization in Long Beach that is an affiliate of the California Immigrant Policy Center Network and that specifically focuses on immigration with an emphasis on the undocumented population and on families where members have different immigration statuses.

LBIRC has been working for over sixteen years to serve and organize immigrants in the Greater Long Beach area. To empower community members, we currently run adult English as a Second Language (ESL) classes at four locations across Long Beach and host “Know Your Rights” workshops where we provide crucial information about what to do in the event of a detention or deportation that threatens to separate family members. We hold free immigration legal clinics three times a year with access to free legal consultations. LBIRC is also involved in state and local efforts to change policies that will benefit immigrants in California, such Health4All (access to Medi-Cal) and limitations on the local agency collaborations with federal immigration authorities (I.C.E.).
