Vote-buttonElection 2018: Let’s get out the immigrant vote!

Immigrants in Massachusetts can be a powerful political force. About 1 in 11 state residents – 1 in 7 in Boston – is a naturalized U.S. citizen. Add the U.S.-born children of immigrants and the thousands of citizens who have mobilized to fight for immigrant rights across our Commonwealth, and we have a political force to be reckoned with.

So let’s use that power to effect change!

For the 2018 election, MIRA is doing two things: 1) helping voters choose by providing videos, Q&As and other informational materials; and 2) getting out the immigrant (and pro-immigrant) vote through canvasses and phone banks – both for the Sept. 4 primaries, and for the Nov. 6 election.

We’ll have dozens of opportunities to join our get-out-the-vote efforts; sign up on Eventbrite or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to learn more.

Below is a list of the races for which we’ve produced videos so far.

With hundreds of candidates on the ballot, we can’t cover everything, so we’ve prioritized contested races in particularly immigrant-rich districts. You can access all the videos on our Facebook page. Watch, read and please share!
