Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from Madison and Milwaukee High Schools is an honest and inspiring anthology of 30 personal essays written by Wisconsin immigrant high school students attending James Madison Memorial High School in Madison and Pulaski High School in Milwaukee. Each essay is accompanied by a full-color portrait of the author as well as a QR code that links to online video narratives demonstrating these students' wisdom and insights. Coming from 20 different countries across four continents, in their own words the young authors reveal the breadth and complexities of contemporary immigration. This collection highlights the broad range of experiences and hopes of young new Americans. Authors include Selma, who moved from Syria in 2015, Alirio, who moved from Venezuela in 2018, and Aziz and Nur Fatema, who were forced to flee the Rohingya persecution in Myanmar. These written and digital narratives are a unique and powerful resource for those seeking to gain a better understanding of the diverse journeys America's newest and youngest immigrants experienced en route to their new home. The student voices collected in this anthology build empathy and connection across communities, demonstrating the importance of building a country in which all voices are heard, amplified, and celebrated. This is the fifth anthology in the Green Card Youth Voices Series--previous collections include Minneapolis, Fargo, St. Paul, and Atlanta.
