The Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama The Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama (HICA)

HICA provides services and support to members of the Hispanic community in Birmingham and Alabama. In addition to language training, HICA works to provide access to health care, strengthen education opportunities, foster economic development, assist with legal issues, and facilitate community outreach. After the passage of Alabama’s controversial immigration law HB-56, HICA has worked with affected communities to provide a safe place for those seeking to understand their rights.

Volunteers work with HICA in a number of capacities depending on their Spanish proficiency. Bilingual students assist clients, while non-Spanish speakers help teach citizenship and language classes. All volunteers help coordinate outreach efforts.
