Everyone knows there are multiple societal issues facing our country today – racial inequality, racial injustice, social justice, uptick in crime, violence, hate, etc. Most people don’t know how to constructively help America and its citizens.
One CommunityUSA™ is the solution!
Rebuilding trust is a tall order but it can be done. Sustainable change and safe, secure neighborhoods only happen when everyone works together to create a common goal of improving lives for everyone by addressing and working through contemporary societal issues and putting UNITY back into our communities. This approach creates an environment where every voice matters, instilling a sense of being heard and valued – no matter the zip code.
North Texas Giving Day is September 17, 2020.
