Operation Understanding DC
September 30, 2009

As a former member of the OUDC board, I'll admit to being biased in favor of the organization. However, since returning to Montgomery, Alabama and the Southern Poverty Law Center (of which I'm a co-founder) in 1996, I've come to know OUDC in a much different way. Each year OUDC students have included the SPLC's Civil Rights Memorial and Civil Rights Memorial Center on their trips through the South; and each year I've had the opportunity to speak with these young men and women about my experiences in addressing issues of justice and tolerance. More importantly, I've listened to them - their questions, their comments. If ever anyone had any doubts about the merits of a program that brings young people together to bridge differences and create understanding, an hour with these kids would make a believer out any such person. They get it. And, they get it because of who they are and how OUDC has matured as an organization in the management of its mission. Congratulations to all.
