He has served in high-level positions with some of the most esteemed organizations around the world, leading innovative efforts to combat religious intolerance among various communities, including on college campuses throughout the United Kingdom. Furthermore, due to his unique expertise in his field, Mr. Klein is regularly invited to speak as a lecturer at prestigious conferences and panels, and has himself organized several groundbreaking programs and conferences in efforts to teach and engage young leaders about the tools needed to combat religious intolerance and bring people of different origins and faiths together in a meaningful way.

Pursuant to his O-1 visa, Mr. Klein will continue to teach and lead innovative workshops in the United States on topics relating to interreligious conflict resolution. We are thrilled to have secured a visa for such an impressive individual, who will undoubtedly continue improving the world by building tolerance and understanding on a global level.
