Wouldn’t you like to see a way forward beyond the political tribalism affecting immigration issues today? That’s what our A Way Forward community campaign is all about—providing real solutions that help immigrant families and individuals overcome the language, social, and economic barriers they face here.

This is a critical time for our students. The current administration’s policies create great uncertainty for immigrants and have led to even stronger demand for the services Downtown Languages provides. Your gift to A Way Forward will help build the foundation for a diversified funding base that will sustain our ability to serve the immigrant community for years to come.

Here’s what your gift can do:

$250 – 6 students attend US Citizenship courses until ready for exam.
$100 – 2 students attend 5 weeks of Bilingual Computer classes.
$50 – 1 student attends a 5-week English as a Second Language class.

Just as Downtown Languages is a way forward for immigrants, our community campaign is a way forward for Downtown Languages. We hope you’ll make a generous gift today that supports A Way Forward. You can mail a check payable to Downtown Languages to Downtown Languages, 532 C Street, Springfield, OR 97477 or give online.
