Ways to help

Help register new citizens to vote

MIRA’s voter registration drives happen directly after naturalization ceremonies throughout the state of Massachusetts, often at Faneuil Hall or other landmarks in the Greater Boston Area. Volunteers fill out voter registration forms for newly sworn-in citizens, empowering them with the first rite of passage to becoming an active and engaged citizen. Registering new voters is fun and easy, and all materials—clipboards, forms, and pins—are provided.

Help immigrants become U.S. citizens

MIRA’s Citizenship Clinics are hosted throughout the state of Massachusetts, with a larger concentration of clinics in the Greater Metro Boston Area. Clinics are typically hosted on Fridays. Clinic volunteers help with registering clients, filling out U.S. Citizenship applications, and copying needed paperwork.

Behind-the-scenes volunteer

Along with these opportunities, we gratefully accept volunteers who are willing to do behind-the-scenes work like data entry, record-keeping and other unglamorous but much-needed tasks.

Designer, Illustrator, Photographer, or Videographer Volunteer

We are always looking for talented artists to design flyers, posters, postcards, buttons and other materials for all our activities. If you're a designer or illustrator and would like to be part of our team, we would love to have you! We also have a big need for photos and video from our different events and activities, and to make short videos to raise awareness of "Know Your Rights" and other issues.

How you helpOur volunteers play important roles in several different aspects of our work, particularly our citizenship services, voter registration drives, and communications and events.
About usOne in six Massachusetts residents, and one in five workers, is foreign-born. MIRA starts from the premise that immigrants and refugees are an asset to our Commonwealth. MIRA is the largest coalition in New England promoting the rights and integration of immigrants and refugees. With offices in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, we advance this mission through education and training, leadership development, institutional organizing, strategic communications, policy analysis and advocacy.
