Our digital stories provide a rich collection of immigrant voices and experiences. They are dynamic and designed to engage participants. Students will be able to better understand, respond to, and accommodate the cultural dimensions of fellow students who are new to the U.S. Teachers will learn how to be more inclusive and welcoming in our changing society and help build cultural connections among different students. Exploring opinions about immigration in the classroom challenges commonly held myths and prepares students to grapple with different cultural issues in a respectful, thoughtful, and productive way. Moreover, integrating the facts and stories of immigrant experiences into classrooms and the school helps to create a more welcoming environment for new immigrant students and their families, as they see that their knowledge and experiences are valued.

Launched in 2013, Green Card Voices’ mission is to share various stories of our nation’s 40 million immigrants and put a human face to the current immigration debate. Simply, we hope to introduce immigrants to their neighbors. Our organization focuses not only on capturing individual stories, but also on demonstrating the incredible breadth of the immigrant population. We want to show that immigrants work on our farms, serve our food, teach our children, create our technologies, and start our Fortune 500 companies. Utilizing web-based video storytelling, we’re traveling the country and listening to those with the courage to share their journey, documenting each story in an authentic and unbiased way. The chronicles of those whose stories we capture are both awe-inspiring and thought provoking, portraying the diversity of the immigrant experience in the United States.
