30 Poems in November! is a literary fundraiser for Center for New Americans. Center for New Americans welcomes and serves immigrants in Western Massachusetts with free English classes and a range of support services. For more information, please visit: http://www.cnam.org This year, we aim to raise $50,000. Writers do their part by writing one poem each day in November. Friends and family do their part by donating to support this effort. Powerful new poems and financial contributions translate to community support for immigrants.
for the second year i am delighted to be writing to support the services the staff and volunteers provide to immigrants from many diverse countries. after attending the annual meeting on 9/27/17 and hearing stories about and by the wonderful folks who use these needed services, i became more inspired to work on behalf of the Center for New Americans.
