Green Card Voices explores stories of the diverse immigrant population that has shaped the Twin Cities. Featuring immigrants from 22 different countries, this exhibit tells stories of coming to Minnesota from countries all around the world, from Bangladesh to Cameroon to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The participants represent a diverse range of professions and ages and arrived in Minnesota through many immigration routes, including as refugees, DACA recipients, and through family reunification, but they all share one important trait: They now call the Twin Cities home.
In this banner exhibit, visitors can view photographs of each immigrant and read bios of their unique stories. Then scan a QR code on your phone or another device to see first-person videos of each participant discussing their immigration experiences.
This exhibit was created by the Twin Cities nonprofit Green Card Voices. In 2013, Green Card Voices produced its first touring photo exhibit as part of its mission to share personal narratives of America’s immigrants, fostering tolerance, and establishing a better understanding between the immigrant and non-immigrant populations. Since 2013, the exhibit has traveled to more than 35 locations around Minnesota.
