Immigrants’ Day at the State House is one of MIRA’s proudest traditions, with 26 years of history in advocacy. Each spring, we bring together hundreds of immigrants and refugees to the State House to hear from public officials and advocate for our communities’ legislative and budget priorities.
As we did last year, the event will be held in a virtual space for safety and public health reasons, with a speaking program with built-in digital advocacy opportunities, followed by regional “roundtables” with legislators co-hosted by MIRA member organizations.
This year, we are privileged to announce that Boston Mayor Michelle Wu will be our keynote speaker. Other featured speakers include State Senator Adam Gomez, Senate Chair, Joint Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities; State Representative Carlos González, House Chair, Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security; Beth Huang, Executive Director, Massachusetts Voter Table; and Driving Families Forward Coalition co-chairs Chrystel Murrieta Ruiz, Political Coordinator, 32BJ, and Lenita Reason, Executive Director, Brazilian Worker Center.
