The Florida Immigrant Coalition (FLIC) is a statewide coalition of more than 65 member organizations and over 100 allies, founded in 1998 and formally incorporated in 2004. We are led by our membership – grassroots and community organizations, farmworkers, youth, advocates, lawyers, unions and others.
More than an organization, FLIC has become a hub for a bold, agile and strategic multi-racial, intergenerational social movement. We work together for the fair treatment of all people, including immigrants. With staff in five counties, and members throughout Florida, FLIC’s leadership builds depth in local communities, breadth for statewide reach and national alignment.
Our unique power-building model has contributed to our movement’s cohesion, direction, and impact. In a short period and with modest investment, we’ve evolved from episodic, tactical mobilizations to a more sophisticated, strategic and impactful organization. While still emerging, we have become a growing force in Florida.
