Office of Immigrant Affairs

Implementing policies and programs and ensuring access to services that strengthen the well-being of Philadelphia's immigrant communities.

Office of Immigrant Affairs

What we do

From the beginning, Philadelphia has worked to be a welcoming place to people from all walks of life. Our country was built by immigrants and our strength as a city is reinforced by our vibrant diversity.

The mission of the Office of Immigrant Affairs (OIA) is to promote the well-being of Philadelphia’s immigrant communities. We do this by recommending and developing policies and programs, which in turn provide opportunity and access to services.

We help facilitate the successful inclusion of immigrants into the civic, economic, and cultural life of the city. We highlight the essential role that immigrants have played and continue to play in our city.

OIA also supports the work of the following commissions:

    This June, in honor of Black Music Month, AAMP invites you to join us from 4 PM to 8 PM and experience Rhythms of Liberation from Juneteenth to Beyond! This FREE event consists of an evening with a DJ, live entertainment, vendors, food, drinks, and more!

    On Saturday, June 15th, throw on your evening wear, pull out that fringe in the back of your closet, and grab your oxfords as we hit the plaza again to celebrate the Black experience through Jazz & Blues music. Take a trip down memory lane as we dive into the sultry sounds of Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Jon Batiste, Esperanza Spalding, and so much more.

    If you’re feeling so moved, we welcome you to hit the mic and bless the crowd with a little bit of spoken word or poetry accompanied by the soulful sounds of Jazz and Blues.

    Savor the moment with food and visit the Adult lounge for a smooth whiskey drink. Shop with our locally sourced vendors and help support Black entrepreneurs.
