Green Card Youth Voices: Discussion and exhibit

In 2017, Green Card Voices met with 30 immigrant students, and soon-to-be-authors, from LEAP High School in St. Paul. In collaboration with Hamline University graduate students, Green Card Voices worked with these English learner students, who come from 13 different countries, to create individual online video narratives and written personal essays that have been published in Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from a St. Paul High School. 

Head to the Shoreview Library on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m., to hear the stories behind the exhibit and the book. A panel of students who contributed their stories to the book will share their amazing personal stories. A moderated discussion will be followed by a Q and A. 

After the program, check out the Green Card Youth Voices exhibit, which will be on display at the library in Shoreview through Dec. 31. The Green Card Youth Voices exhibit features photos, biographical information and a QR code that links to the students’ first-person video stories. The program and exhibit is presented through a generous Saint Paul Foundation grant to Green Card Voices. The library is located at 4560 Victoria St. N in Shoreview.
