About a decade ago, when my children were six and eleven, my family and I embarked on a journey to see the “amber waves of grain” and to truly experience our country. We have created many lifelong memories along the way, but I was perhaps most surprised by our nation's National Parks. Their bounty and diverse beauty astounds me. As we traveled, I became more and more aware how important it is for all of the country’s youth to be able to fully experience America.
Birthright America was established to provide an opportunity for those children who financially wouldn’t be able to visit some of our country's great National Parks to have that chance. Every child - both those born in America and those DREAMERS for whom America has always been their home - should have the same opportunity my children have had - to see and feel what we have experienced while traveling through our beautiful country.
