Once again I’m raising money for the Center for New Americans, in Northampton, MA. Center for New Americans (CNA) is a community-based, non-profit adult education center that provides the under-served immigrant, refugee and migrant communities of Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley with education and resources to learn English, become involved community members and obtain tools necessary to maintain economic independence and stability.
Now, more than ever, it’s critical to create a safe, welcoming space for those new to our country and our communities. I hope you’ll join me in supporting the work of CNA–any amount is appreciated!
This year I’m choosing to write with a focus on “resistance.” I’ll interpret that broadly–physical, spiritual, artistic, ideological–in any case, I’ll be writing a poem a day using this theme as a starting point. If you’d like to see what I’m doing, I’ll post poems periodically here and on Facebook. For contributions of $100 or more, you can suggest a topic for me, and I’ll do my best to write a poem for you.
If you’d like to sponsor me, and support the work of this fine organization, here’s the link!
Thanks so much!
