There are approximately 300,000 Legal Permanent Residents eligible to naturalize in the state of Massachusetts. Yet only a fraction of these individuals are becoming citizens each year. With many benefits of US Citizenship, such as the right to vote, to petition for family members in another country, and evidence of increased employment and income opportunities, why are more individuals not seeking US citizenship? The program at the MIRA Coalition and the other partners in the region and nation are working to make the citizenship process more accessible to individuals throughout the state and building the power within immigrant communities throughout the country to positively affect change in the immigration system in the United States.
The role of the Citizenship Coordinator is to run the statewide citizenship campaign, carry out innovative strategies to promote civic engagement throughout the region, and represent MIRA on the national stage in relevant conferences and trainings.
