Community Conversations: Immigrant Community Needs in Boston

Community Conversations is a space for volunteers to deepen their understanding of issues in the Greater Boston Community.

MIRA serves the Commonwealth's one million foreign-born residents with policy analysis and advocacy, institutional organizing, training and leadership development, strategic communications, citizenship assistance, and AmeriCorps initiatives that provide capacity-building for community-based organizations.
