Once again, I am writing 30 poems to benefit the Center for New Americans, an organization that makes such a big difference in the lives of so many individuals who are new to this country by offering free English classes, support services, career and legal assistance to immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers in our area. Having spent much of the last five years working on issues of immigrant justice, including traveling to the border and speaking with many refugees and asylum-seekers, I know how much these services are needed and how essential they are. Thanks so much for considering.
Goal $350.00

This year, I'm doing this in conjunction with the launch of my new short-story collection, IMMIGRANTS, forthcoming from Creators Press at the end of November. (https://www.creators.com/books/immigrants-friedman). All donations, large and small, are appreciated and I will be glad to send you a poem (or all 30 poems), or a story from the book in gratitude.
