About this event
The MIRA (Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy) Coalition and SomerViva, the Somerville Office of Immigrant Affairs, invite you to an afternoon of celebration, recognition, and fun, dedicated to the contributions and achievements of our immigrant communities here in Massachusetts, as we continue to call for a pathway to citizenship to be included in the next recovery package.
Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and the last 18 months of lockdowns, reopening, and recovery, immigrant workers and families have played a vital role on the front lines. It’s critical for us all to recognize that contribution, and thank those who have given so much, yet still remain under-appreciated and treated inequitably in so many ways.
Please join us!
Where: Our celebration will take place in front of the East Somerville Community School at 50 Cross St.
When: 4:00 pm-6:00 pm on Friday, July 23
What: Music, ice cream, immigrant and community speakers, and more!
How Much: It’s completely free! Just show up and show your support.
