Europe is geographically divided on the issue of immigration. Large cities are the home of Cosmopolitan Europe, where immigration is viewed as a positive contribution to society.

WorldDenver is pleased to announce that it will hold a Pitch Competition for the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Professional Fellows. Each Fellow will present his or her business or organizational pitch to a group of prominent judges from the Denver community. The winner from this competition will go on to compete in the finals in Washington D.C. during the Closing Summit of the YLAI Program. A networking reception will follow the competition.

After leading “Rabbis For Human Rights” for 21 years, Rabbi Ascherman recently founded “Torat Tzedek-Torah of Justice.” Professor Alan Gilbert will serve as the discussant.
