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 and allied communities gather annually at the State Capitol to fight anti-immigrant legislation. Civic Engagement Day has contributed to the defeat of 292 anti-immigrant proposals as well as the passage of 6 bills that have benefited our immigrant neighbors.
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.
