New American Story Project

What can I do to help?

Financial Support

Donate to NASP, With your support, we can continue interviewing children and bringing you up-to-date stories and information about the new Americans who make up the Welcome Children project. Your donations will go toward transcription, editing, video production, photography and web design.

Donate to Centro Legal de la Raza, our fiscal sponsor. They provide comprehensive legal services to protect and advance the rights of immigrant and low-income communities. They have represented many of the children whose stories are featured at NASP.

Engage Your Representatives
