About The Leadership Breakfast Series
Looking to get to the next level in your nonprofit career? At YNPN Twin Cities' Leadership Breakfast series, nonprofit Executive Directors and other leaders will share with you exactly how they did it, what they learned and what they're looking for in a rising nonprofit leader.
A little bit about Tea Rozman Clark, Executive Director of Green Card Voices:
Twenty years ago, while working in refugee camps in the war-torn former Yugoslavia, Tea Rozman Clark made a commitment to serve those whose lives had been unjustly disrupted by conflict. Years later, as she visited Srebrenica residents as part of her postgraduate studies at New York University (and University of Nova Gorica), Tea realized the impact of first-person digital story sharing. Tea has dedicated her life to sharing the stories of immigrants with the goal of shrinking the divide between immigrant and non-immigrant communities in the U.S. As a native citizen of what was known as Yugoslavia, Tea has found a home for her virtual story-telling organization, Green Card Voices within Intermedia Arts’ ArtsHub.
She formed Green Card Voices, an organization that combats stereotypes by empowering immigrants to tell their stories. Tea received a Bush Fellowship in 2015 to build her nonprofit manager skills to grow Green Card Voices into the largest video library of immigrant stories in the country.
Previously, Tea worked for Reconciliation and Culture Cooperative Network, a New York City non-profit working with immigrants from the Former Yugoslavia. Tea is an NYU graduate in Near and Middle Eastern studies and has a PhD in Cultural History, specializing in oral history recording from the University of Nova Gorica. She is first generation immigrant from Slovenia and 2015 Bush Leadership Fellow.
