First Person American is a 2010 Sappi Ideas That Matter grant recipient! We’re excited to work with the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation.
Our proposal was one of the twenty-seven winning grant recipients. Sappi Ideas That Matter is an annual program that funds design for social good. First Person American will speak to the next generation of immigrants and promote the idea that storytelling and design can have a positive social impact. The Sappi Ideas That Matter grant will help First Person American have a strong and transformative effect on individual immigrant and non-immigrant lives and communities. Thank you Sappi Paper!
