The Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA) is the largest organization in New England promoting the rights and integration of immigrants and refugees. In recent years, members of a New England Law student organization, the Immigration Law Association (ILA), have found MIRA’s Citizenship Clinics to be a rewarding experience that benefits both the students and members of local communities. Students assist eligible residents apply for citizenship by answering questions and helping fill out forms at the Saturday walk-in clinics throughout the year. This fall, three clinics will be located at MIRA’s Boston offices, conveniently located near the law school at 105 Chauncy Street, Suite 901, Boston, MA 02111, on September 28th, November 9th, and a forthcoming date in December.
ILA has partnered with MIRA to give Citizenship Clinic trainings at the law school so more students will have the opportunity to participate in this great program. The first training will take place from 4 – 5 pm on Wednesday, September 25th in room 306.
*Attendance at a training is required before volunteering at a clinic.
Please RSVP to Manmeet Kaur Desai at firstname.lastname@example.org to attend the training on September 25th.
Students who participate may be eligible for the Public Service Transcript Notation. For more questions about the Transcript Notation Program, please contact the CLSR Fellow Kevin Crane at email@example.com.
