Green Card Voices is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, charitable organization that was founded in 2013 in Minneapolis. The mission of Green Card Voices is to utilize digital storytelling to share personal narratives of America’s immigrants, fostering tolerance and establishing a better understanding between the immigrant and non-immigrant populations. The dynamic, video-based platform is designed to empower a variety of educational institutions, community groups and individuals alike to acquire first-person perspective about immigrants’ lives, increasing the appreciation of the immigrant experience in America.
Owatonna Public School District was able to have Green Card Voices offered as a traveling exhibit to each of our schools with the help of a grant. District EL Coordinator, Martina Wagner, and teachers decided to broaden the exhibit to also showcase the stories of some of our own students.
