In the wake of the horrific attack on the Tree of Life synagogue, and the immense support given to our community, the Denver Network is proud to bring together leaders from different faith communities to talk through how we can truly be allies to one another.
Join leaders from local Jewish, Sikh, Muslim, and Christian communities for dinner and a conversation focused on equality, justice, and community engagement. Our goal is to engage young women of all faiths in the Denver community on how we can work together, build lasting relationships, and have constructive conversations about our differences, values, and passions as young female leaders.
