Enhancing Immigrant Lives for a Stronger Maine

What We Do

At the Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition (MIRC), our mission is to improve legal, social, and economic conditions for immigrants in the state of Maine. 

MIRC brings together more than 103 organizations to form a unique statewide network representing diverse ethnic communities. These organizations, a majority of which are led by people of color, work together to foster immigrant inclusion and integration through both support programs and policies.

Enhancing their lives while strengthening Maine – through advocacy, information sharing and collaboration both through and among our member organizations.”
