Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance (MIRA)
MIRA advocates, educates and organizes immigrant and allied communities to spread awareness of immigrant issues in housing, education, healthcare and the workplace.
Immigrant rights are a complex issue that affect many aspects of society, including politics and government, education, healthcare, law enforcement, the economy, and more. For this reason, we focus on four separate but interconnected areas of action.
This multi-prolonged approach allow us to provide a robust and holistic response to the issues that arise.
Your donation will support the movement for social justice in Mississippi, by helping to recover stolen wages for immigrant workers, fight police harassment and discrimination, educate communities about our rights, and make sure marginalized voices are heard in the legislative processes.
We believe that our mission can be achieved by actively seeking opportunities to empower immigrants to advocate for themselves. By equipping immigrants with the knowledge and tools to assert their rights, we enable them to navigate the complex legal and social systems more effectively
MIRA educates individuals and communities about immigrants rights and how to respond when approached by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.).
We believe that NO Human Being is Illegal. MIRA advocates for a pathway to citizenship to protect our undocumented communities.
