Give Liberty a Hand is MIRA’s biggest fundraiser of the year and our celebration of champions for immigrants in our Commonwealth – leaders in government, business, and advocacy who “give liberty a hand” by working to advance the rights and integration of immigrants and refugees.

As with last year, we’ll be going virtual, with an online celebration and recognition of our supporters, our communities, and our constituents, who have continued to work for equity and justice throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Annual Gala provides crucial core funding for MIRA, enabling us to respond quickly and effectively to our communities’ needs. If you missed out on GLAH’21 watch the program here.

We look forward to sharing this celebration with you.
