DiDomenico serves as speaker at MIRA’s Our Shared Table luncheon

State Senator Sal DiDomenico recently joined with State Representative Joe McGonagle, Everett School Committee Member Marcony Almeida Barros and former city councillor candidate Stephanie Martins at the Massachusetts Immigrants and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition’s Annual Our Shared Table event at the State House. Every year, to kick off the holiday season, MIRA hosts this luncheon for newly sworn-in U.S citizens and other immigrants and refugees to celebrate our Commonwealth’s rich diversity, to share personal stories and to make new connections. DiDomenico served at a speaker at this year’s event, highlighting the many contributions of our Commonwealth’s immigrant community.

“Our Shared Table is always one of my favorite events of the year, and it was an honor to join with so many friends at this year’s holiday luncheon to celebrate our immigrant and refugee community. I am proud to support MIRA Coalition through our work in the Massachusetts Senate, and I am very grateful to Executive Director Eva Millona and her team for all that they do to make our Commonwealth a welcoming place for all.”

Senator DiDomenico has been a longtime supporter of MIRA Coalition and a champion for immigrants’ rights. Throughout his tenure in the Senate, he has repeatedly advocated for initiatives that provide critical services to our immigrant and refugee population and programs that help residents of Massachusetts become United States citizens.
