This will be the Fifth Annual Fundraising Gala for Green Card Voices, a non-profit, non-partisan organization, and we would love for you to join us! The highlight of the Gala this year will be the release of the book “Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from a St. Paul High School” when the 30 LEAP High student authors will be holding the book in their hands for the very first time.
This book embodies key dimensions of Green Card Voices’ mission; providing immigrants with a platform to tell their own stories, in exactly the ways they want them to be heard. The youth of America truly are the future of America hence the Gala’s theme this is YOU ARE YOUR STORY. At the Gala, we will show you how Green Card Voices is empowering a generation that will work to build a nation where all voices are heard and valued. Come join us and experience the culmination of these students’ courageous narrative journeys.
