MAYOR WU AND IMMIGRANT ADVANCEMENT=HOST WE ARE BOSTON 2022: FROM DREAMS TO ACTION

BOSTON – Thursday, February 24, 2022 – Mayor Michelle Wu and the Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement (MOIA) are inviting the media to attend We Are Boston, an annual reception that honors the contributions immigrants have made to our City. This year’s We Are Boston 2022: From Dreams to Action is on March 3 from 6 – 7pm on Zoom.

This year’s reception was originally planned for February as an in-person event; but due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, it is now on March 3 and will be a virtual event. Government officials, local immigrant-serving nonprofits, corporate sponsors, and the public are all invited to attend. The event is free but registration is required.

During the reception, Mayor Wu will address her goals for the upcoming year and name this year’s honorees. The 2022 “We Are Boston Community Champion Award” will go to the Asian Community Emergency Relief Fund, made up of six local groups. The Fund distributed more than half a million dollars to families that lost incomes because of the pandemic and could not access public benefits, all while facing anti-Asian racism. The 2022 “We Are Boston Corporate Leadership Award” will go to Arbella Insurance Foundation for its generous support of immigrant nonprofits year after year.

Any media who wish to attend can email paien.yu@boston.gov. A press release announcing our recent mini-grant recipients can be found on boston.gov/we-are-boston.
