$2,000 Goal

Over the last year, our community has faced unprecedented challenges, with rising xenophobia and hate spurred by COVID-19 and police brutality. During SpringForwardMN this May 1-11, we aim to raise $2000 to support community outreach for counteracting racism.


SpringForwardMN funds will support community outreach to: 

1.  Introduce our children's book to younger audiences. We've successfully secured funding for the production of a new children's book for younger audiences. Additional funds will spring us forward with accompanying community programming.

2.  Expand our collection of Green Card Artist VoicesWe've partnered with Arts Midwest to record 6 additional Artist storytellers this Spring, bringing our collection closer to book form. Additional funds will support reaching out to the immigrant artists community to discover and amplify more storytellers. 

3. Bring Our Stories Carried Us Here, into schools and bookstores nationwide. Our successful Kickstarter campaign will cover the costs for printing the work in hardcover. Additional funds will spring forward the work by enabling us to promote it to new audiences. 


Sharing Stories. Opening Minds. Becoming Neighbors.

Green Card Voices is a Minneapolis-based organization that works to record and share first-person narratives of America’s immigrants to facilitate a better understanding between immigrants and their communities.

Our dynamic, multimedia platforms feature over 500 first-person stories of immigrants and refugees originally from 140 countries who now reside in Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, California, North Dakota, Georgia,  and Wisconsin. Our work is designed to empower educational institutions, community groups, and individuals alike to acquire first-person perspectives about immigrants’ lives, fostering empathy, and building appreciation for the immigrant experience in America. Over half a million people have already experienced our content and we need your help expanding it across the nation.


Thank you!

Over 47 million people immigrants are in the U.S. Your gifts allow us to preserve first-person stories by them and ensure it is accessible for future generations. 

Green Card Voices is a lot of things: a small nonprofit organization with a big mission, a publishing group, a bridge between immigrants and nonimmigrants. More than anything, it is a community. We're so grateful you're a part of it. Thank you!
