About Us

The Center for Intercultural Organizing (CIO) is a diverse, grassroots organization working to build a multi-racial, multicultural movement for immigrant and refugee rights. We build power in newcomer communities through community education, civic engagement and policy advocacy, organizing and mobilization, and intergenerational leadership development.

Over the past 10 years, CIO has engaged thousands of individuals from diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, trained new immigrant and refugee community leaders, produced hundreds of educational events and mobilized countless immigrant and refugee community members to participate in civic life.
