Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition

Working with local and national partners, the MIRA Coalition makes the citizenship process more accessible to immigrants across the Commonwealth through our Citizenship Clinics— traveling group processing sessions that offer free legal assistance for eligible legal permanent residents who want to become citizens.

Upcoming Citizenship Events

Our Process:
We'll guide you through the naturalization form, step by step, including a waiver for the federal fees if you qualify. When you attend a clinic, you will join 20-40 other individuals who are also applying for citizenship. Our Citizenship Team works together with a group of trained volunteers to go through the N-400 Application for Naturalization with you one-on-one. At a clinic you will go through 4 stations: 1) Check-in & Registration 2) Screening for Eligibility 3) Completing the Application 4) Quality Control. The whole process takes between 2 and 3 hours. We will keep a copy of your documents in our office, and receive United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) notices about your citizenship appointments.
We look forward to assisting you!

Are you ready to become a U.S. citizen? Call 617-350-5480 x200 to register for a clinic.

Project Citizenship

Project Citizenship isProject_Citizenship a collaborative project that helps eligible legal permanent residents overcome  barriers to naturalization. Project Citizenship was formerly the Greater Boston Citizenship Initiative.  GBCI was created by the Fish Family Foundation in partnership with six other immigrant, community-based, and direct service organizations to increase naturalization rates in the state. The core partners with MIRA and the Fish Foundation in this effort were the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, Centro Latino, College Bound Dorchester, Irish International Immigrant Center and the Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers, all of whom are well-established and respected pillars in their communities.

Project Citizenship partner agencies provide a range of support services for LPRs seeking citizenship, including civics instruction, application assistance, and referrals to legal services and ESOL classes. In addition, Project Citizenship offers FREE clinics providing LPRs the legal guidance, referrals and materials needed to successfully complete their application, pass their citizenship test and become fully integrated members of the United States.
