Welcoming and serving immigrant communities is the mission of the Center for New Americans. The Center offers free language classes and jobs programs to make for an easier transition to American culture. For the past four years, they’ve also put on Immigrant Voices: A Celebration of Arts, an event that allows graduates of the program showcase traditions from their home countries through song, dance and poetry. Connecting Point’s Brian Sullivan went to Turners Falls to see this year’s festivities.
