Since its founding in 1987, MIRA has been driven by its broad, diverse membership across the Commonwealth, which includes immigrant-led community organizations, refugee resettlement agencies, providers of social, legal and health services, faith-based organizations and civil and human rights advocates.

Our 100+ member organizations are the heart and soul of our coalition. They keep MIRA staff alert to challenges and developments on the ground; ensure that we consider diverse viewpoints, including underrepresented voices; guide our policy agenda; and help us mobilize immigrants, refugees and allies across the Commonwealth to effect change.

MIRA organizational members are closely involved in all our campaigns and activities, and at our Annual Meeting, they help set our advocacy priorities for the coming year.
