30 Poems in November! is a literary fundraiser for Center for New Americans, an organization that welcomes and serves immigrants in Western Massachusetts with free English classes and a range of support services. You can find out more about what they offer at http://www.cnam.org
Our fundraising goal this year is $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.
Things haven't gotten any easier for immigrants in America since this time last year, and the work Center for New Americans does is increasingly important. Please consider giving a modest amount to support free English lessons and a range of other support services, including job training programs. Your donations and my poems can help offset the shameful, divisive, and hateful rhetoric we've all heard too much of, and can make a difference in the lives of our newest Americans.
