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.

Join us to advocate for our pro-immigrant budget and legislative agenda. We will focus on the Safe Communities Act, the Work and Family Mobility Act, the Language Access and Inclusion Act, the COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Act, and several budget line-items!
Additionally, we will be hosting two optional pre-event training sessions the week before the event. These training sessions are a chance to learn more about the day’s structure and the legislation we’ll be advocating for, as well as to polish your advocacy skills! Attendance is completely optional, but encouraged. Each session will be the same, so you only need to attend one. Interpretation will be offered. Sign up for Wednesday, March 24th at 6:00pm or Thursday, March 25th at noon.
