Operation Understanding DC
October 8, 2009
I completed Operation Understanding DC in 2002. Although it has been over 7 years since I graduated from the program, it is still to date, the most life altering experience that I have had. Throughout College, Law School, and in my work experience, I have been able to draw on my OUDC experience in various capacities, including how to address discrimination and how to engage in a productive dialogue with people who I may disagree with. The best part of Operation Understanding DC is that it is accessible to everyone. Had the program not been free, it is highly doubtful that I would have been able to participate and have the amazing cultural experience that I had as I travelled throughout the United States visiting sites of Civil Rights importance and sites that had significant Jewish History.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The great relationships that I have developed with people through the program.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Reach so many more youth and make an even more substantial contribution to eradicating injustice and eliminating ignorance.
