Immigrating is hard. America’s current socio-political climate is making it even harder. We’re constantly bombarded with people’s thoughts on immigrants every single day. But there usually is something missing: the perspective of actual immigrants sharing their own experiences. Thus, this month’s proceeds will go to Make the Road New Jersey (MRNJ). MRNJ builds the power of working class and immigrant communities to achieve dignity and respect through high quality legal services, transformative education, and policy innovation.
Our expert: At Make the Road New Jersey, Nedia is responsible for expanding educational opportunities for first generation, Black, Brown, and immigrant youth in greater Union County, New Jersey and youth leadership development.
