ABOUT THE BOOK, GREEN CARD YOUTH VOICES: UPSTATE NEW YORK
The upcoming Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories From Upstate New York High Schools is a collection of personal essays written by thirty students coming from sixteen different countries and attending Rochester City School District Bilingual Language and Literacy Academy, Brighton High School, Twelve Corner Middle School, Lafayette International High School and Newcomer Academy. Unique to the book are links to first-person video, a study guide, and a glossary.
Included are Puerto Ricans who fled Hurricane Maria, Yemenis who escaped starvation, and Rohingya refugees forced to leave Myanmar. These young authors’ stories carry resilience, strength, and hope towards the futures of which they dream.
