In 2018, Green Card Voices together with 70 community members co-created Story Stitch, a conversation card game. Our goal was to build deep connections between immigrants and their neighbors by telling stories, opening minds, and encouraging people to get to know one another. The hope is that this card game will foster deeper conversation, and generate a breakthrough on how immigrants are perceived, treated, and accepted.

Since the co-creation, as the want and need to connect with others in an authentic way has continued to grow, Story Stitch has evolved to fit the needs of the communities that need it. This intentional growth sparked the creation of the Story Stitch Facilitator training and it’s E-Course, and various translated versions of a Printable Deck and Virtual Story Stitch.

At the Gala, attendees will have the opportunity to exchange stories with new people from various backgrounds, including our new neighbors from Afghanistan.
