Welcoming NH in the media

MIRA plays a vital role in promoting the rights and integration of immigrants in New Hampshire through Welcoming New Hampshire, led by our colleague Eva Castillo. As an immigrant and a veteran advocate, Eva is widely recognized as an expert source and a key voice in debates about immigration. She also co-hosts the Spanish-language show Nuestra Voz NH (Our Voice NH) on Channel 23 and online.   

Below is a selection of recent stories quoting her or covering Welcoming New Hampshire work. Click here to see coverage of MIRA in Massachusetts and national media.
