2. Panels

In combination with the touring exhibits, we organize panels comprised of three to four diverse first generation immigrants that have shared their story with GCV. These are moderated panel discussions usually followed by a Questions and Answers (Q&A) period.

3. Books Readings

We organize many book readings where our authors get to read their stories and answer Q&A. Please see more about the in the BOOKS section.

4. Diversity and Inclusion Trainings

Green Card Voices staff offers workshops that help enhance cultural competency around the immigration in Minnesota and beyond.

Titles include: Immigrant Storytelling, The Power of Immigrant Storytelling, Using Personal Narratives to Transform Community Perspective, etc.
