The refugee crisis is one of the biggest issues facing our global society. According to the Pew Research Center, the U.S. took in 84,995 refugees in the 2016 fiscal year. While just being admitted into the U.S. is a battle, once refugees are settled they still need help with things like using public transportation, enrolling children in school, and learning English. In Denver, Colorado, the non-profit Project Worthmore has been doing the important work of helping refugees get settled since 2011. To help Project Worthmore in their efforts, a benefit concert has been announced in Denver.
