There are more than 1.5 million nonprofit and community organizations in the U.S. They have a huge impact on their neighborhoods by providing resources and enriching people’s lives. At a time in the nation’s history when there’s been undeniable progress, yet far too many reminders of how much more remain to be done, many of these organizations work hard to help educate and build more inclusive communities across the country.
Scott Becker, President of the Nissan Foundation and Nissan Senior Vice President of Administration, discusses the benefits of living and working together in a diverse society and how people can get involved today to make their communities better places for all.
