A bold and unconventional collection of first-person stories told and illustrated by immigrants and refugees living across the United States.

Faced by unfamiliar vistas, they are welcomed with possibilities, and confronted by challenges and prejudice. Timely, sobering, and insightful, Our Stories Carried Us Here acts as a mirror and a light to connect us all with immigrant and refugee experiences. Green Card Voices works to educate and empower communities by amplifying first-person stories of America’s immigrants.
