A native of Texas, Joel joined MIRA in 2016 after receiving his B.A. in Political Science from Boston College. In his time at MIRA, Joel has overseen a civic engagement project that has registered and mobilized thousands of new citizens to vote every year. By working in coalition with key stakeholders, we have passed pro-immigrant policy at all levels of government, including moving the Safe Communities Act and Driver’s License bills further along than ever before. As Director of Organizing, Joel oversees MIRA’s civic engagement and membership work in addition to supporting its legislative advocacy campaigns.
