Our mission is to build a generation of African American and Jewish community leaders who promote respect, understanding and cooperation while working to eradicate racism, anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination.
Operation Understanding DC does not charge students for their participation in our year-long, cross-cultural education program. Their experiences are made possible entirely by the generous support of individuals, foundations, corporations and congregations. Thank you for your investment in our young leaders.
