MIRA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a membership of more than 200 paid members statewide and more than 700 affiliated members and constituent organizations.

The work of MIRA is directed by Bill Chandler, Executive Director, with more than 45 years of experience in union and community organizing.

Our organizers coordinate home meetings with immigrant community members, and organize public education forums and workshops in neighborhood gathering places and community centers.

Public education and legal advocacy are also conducted by MIRA’s Legal Project.

MIRA holds monthly statewide advocacy meetings in Jackson (September through June), which are open and advertised to the public, designed to help us understand the social climate, assess the needs of the immigrant community, and strategize actions around the state.
