Iraqi Refugee Finds Welcoming Community in Denver

Denver is committed to being a welcoming city for our immigrant and refugee community. We celebrate the diversity of identity, skills, creativity and ideas. Meet Soad Altaai, a refugee from Iraq who emigrated to Denver with her family in 2009. She now works as a translator helping other Iraqi and Syrian women.

"It's a privilege to live in America. It's the land of dreams," Soad says. "I can make my own dreams here, and I am doing that right now."
