$10,000 Goal

As we are slowly reopening our in-person programming and staying connected through in-person co-created work, we are in need of your support. Through sharing stories like Naima Dhore and Amara Solomon Kamara, communities are exposed to inspiring, authentic, first-person immigration narratives that change the way immigrants and refugees are seen in communities across the U.S. Our target is to raise $10,000 to continue and expand our global-changing work.

While the COVID-19 pandemic brought challenges to our organization and changed the way we work, our accomplishments didn’t stop!

1. We published two books, one of which is a first-of-its-kind graphic novel, "Our Stories Carried Us Here", told and illustrated by immigrants. The graphic novel was also turned into an Art Exhibition - created by Charles B. Wang Center at Stony Brook University in New York. This Art Exhibition is free to the public and shown from September 8 - December 10, 2021.


2. In September 2021, we conducted our largest Story Stitch facilitated event with the University of Minnesota, where 400 students had the opportunity to share their stories


3. In October 2021, we hosted an in-person book launch and panel discussion about our graphic novel, Our Stories Carried Us Here that drew in new sponsors and partners to support us in our important work.





There is an engaged audience hungry for Green Card Voices’ unique approach and platform, and we want to build on this momentum! 

  1. Public schools, higher education, and community spaces need our materials. 

  2. Our curriculum evokes critical insights and empathy on immigration issues. 

  3. Our materials support inclusive multi-ethnic, multi-racial communities and a vibrant democracy. 

We can change the narrative about immigration with your help. Donate today and together let's uplift immigrant voices and build communities where everyone belongs! 




Telling Stories. Opening Minds. Becoming Neighbors.

Green Card Voices is a Minneapolis-based, nationally growing non profit that connects immigrants and their communities through multimedia storytelling. We record the first person narratives of immigrants, and publish them in books, online and in traveling exhibits. So far, we have recorded the stories of over 500 immigrants and refugees who are originally from over 140 countries and now reside in Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, California, North Dakota, Georgia and Wisconsin.

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!
