Sundrop Carter

Raised by hippie parents, Sundrop always knew she would be part of movements to advance social justice. Her work is grounded in over two decades of working as an organizer and legal advocate and a childhood imbued with a commitment to building a better world. She recently stepped down as Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition (PICC), where she focused on establishing a sustainable organizational culture and expanding partnerships with immigrant-led grassroots groups. During her time at PICC she facilitated the creation of PA is Ready! a participatory grantmaking fund focused on building statewide legal and organizing capacity within the immigrant rights movement. Sundrop has had a varied career, from working at Make the Road New York assisting low-income immigrant workers with workplace issues including wage theft and workplace safety violations, organizing low-income neighborhoods in Philadelphia and Allentown Pennsylvania with ACORN, to managing a small business promoting the use of renewable energy in rural Arizona. Sundrop received her B.A. from Clark University in Worcester, MA and her J.D. from Brooklyn Law School.
