Immigration Action team
Howard County Coalition for Immigrant Justice (HCCIJ) is a group of immigrants, concerned organizations, and individuals working to support and protect our foreign-born friends and neighbors in Howard County. We believe all residents of Howard County deserve respect, justice, safety, and opportunities to thrive and prosper.
