Immigrants’ Day is one of MIRA’s proudest traditions, bringing hundreds of immigrants and refugees to the State House to hear from public officials and advocate for our communities’ legislative and budget priorities.


This year, because of COVID-19, we’re going virtual, with a ~45-minute speaking program with built-in digital advocacy opportunities, followed by 45-minute regional “roundtables” with legislators co-hosted by MIRA member organizations.


Our legislative hosts are Rep. Marjorie Decker and Sen. Sal DiDomenico. Featured speakers will include Gladys Vega, of the Chelsea Collaborative, and Dawn Sauma, of the Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence, among others.


We’ll focus on longstanding priorities, but also advocate for an equitable and inclusive COVID-19 response, highlighting urgent needs (and pre-existing issues that made our communities more vulnerable).
