The Movement for Immigrant Rights Alliance (M.I.R.A.) is a coalition of UC Santa Cruz students, community members, and diverse organizations working together to build a unified voice for people with migrant backgrounds, particularly those labeled undocumented.

Through dialogue, action, and reflection, M.I.R.A. strives to create a movement for human rights that transcends man-made borders.
