"This young organization has already accomplished so much. When Green Card Voices celebrates its one-year anniversary in September they will have told 100 stories from the perspective of immigrants. My job will be to put an already dynamic organization on the path to world-class success," said Ramos.
Ramos is director of diversity marketing for the Minnesota Twins. Prior to joining the Twins, Ramos worked at Nestle before leading his own consulting firm providing services to organizations such as the Minnesota Timberwolves, St. Paul Companies, William Mitchell School of Law and others.
Ramos has served on the governor's Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee, the board of the Greater Minneapolis & St. Paul United Way, the Science Museum of Minnesota and Casa de Esperanza a national organization dedicated to preventing domestic violence. Ramos moved to the Twin Cities from Puerto Rico with his family 20 years ago.
This appointment comes at the organization's one-year anniversary. On Sept. 6, Green Card Voices will celebrate its anniversary and commemorate the completion of its 100th story at a gala event entitled 100 Stories – 365 Days. The event will unite all 100 storytellers, their families, and the community at the Intermedia Arts building in Minneapolis where each story will be presented using multiple media formats.
Based in Minneapolis, Green Card Voices utilizes digital storytelling to share personal narratives of America's immigrants. To learn more, visit www.greencardvoices.org.
