Getting to Know Your Neighbors
By Pilar Oberwetter
The District of Columbia is quite small—just 68.3 square miles.As such, definition of neighborhood and community should be all-inclusive here in the nation’s capital.So why loud and vehement protests on the awarding of DC’s Neighborhood Investment Fund dollars to organizations such as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Washington National Opera, and the D.C. Jewish Community Center?Perhaps because these organizations that tout their outreach efforts still have some work to do in solidifying authentic relationships with their neighbors outside of NW DC.
We cover news and events related to the nonprofit sector, provide opinion pieces to spark conversation, connect people to new ideas and trends, and draw on the history of civil society in order to bring perspective to the challenges of today.
