Event description

Description

Every year, to kick off the holiday season, MIRA hosts a luncheon at the State House for newly sworn-in U.S citizens and other immigrants and refugees. Elected officials, MIRA members, and supporters join us to celebrate our Commonwealth’s rich diversity, share personal stories and make new connections.

This year’s luncheon, in the Hall of Flags, will highlight emerging leaders in our communities, including newly elected officials from the federal, to the state, to the local level. For the second year in a row, we will honor a Young Champion of Justice – this time, Rep. Juana Matias; we will also hear from Iván Espinoza-Madrigal, executive director of Lawyers for Civil Rights, Damaris Velásquez, director of programs of Agencia ALPHA, and Rahmatullah Aka, of the International Institute of New England. Our emcee will be the Boston Globe editorial writer Marcela García.

The event is FREE and open to all, but we ask you to please register in advance. Click here to learn about sponsorship opportunities; we also gratefully accept individual donations to cover the event costs and support MIRA’s ongoing advocacy.

We hope you'll join us for this festive event!
