“Founded by Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project in 2005 and led by Maine People’s Resource Center (MPRC) since 2012, the Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition, also known as MIRC, grew in size and power from 20 members in 2012 to 68 members located throughout the state. What began as a small, informal yet vibrant coalition 12 years ago transitioned into today’s full-fledged, independent, immigrant-led non-profit organization. The Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition (MIRC) is the convener of a unique, statewide network of 68 organizations, a majority of which are led by people of color – representing diverse ethnic communities across our state. All coalition member organizations are working to create and support programs and policies that promote immigrant inclusion and integration. MIRC represents member organizations that include immigrant constituency groups, advocacy groups, direct service organizations and grassroots community organizations.”
