Our mission is to strengthen the ability of immigrants and Boston’s diverse cultural and linguistic communities to fully participate in the economic, civic, social, and cultural life of our great City. We also work to promote the commemoration and public understanding of the contributions of immigrants to Boston. Learn more about our work.
