Please join me in supporting the Center for New Americans so that others may enjoy the same opportunities my parents did. 30 Poems in November is a literary fundraiser for the 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
One day a bank teller asked me and Jim what nationality our name was. When we told her I am Dutch-Italian and Jim is German-Italian, she said "Oh, you're both Euro Mutts!" Since then I've worn that title proudly and it even inspired a poem with that title. Please join me in supporting this worthwhile fundraiser to support today's New Americans. Immigrants from everywhere are the backbone of America.
