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:

Both are also historically excluded and underrepresented art forms in the US.The 60-minute performance set will include interspersed performances by both companies, and audience interaction, and will be followed by a talkback with Artistic Directors Kat Echevarria Richter (The Lady Hoofers) and Shaily Dadiala (Usiloquy).Usiloquy Dance Designs creates traditional and cross-cultural productions of Indian classical dance Bharatanatyam and conducts educational programs.
