Introducing Another Honoree!

Former Muslim supremacist Mubin Shaikh, former white supremacist Arno Michaelis, former Tanenbaum CEO, Joyce Dubensky and Seeds of Peace Program Director, Kiran Thadhani come together for a Courageous Conversation supported by Nissan Foundation on the power of dialogue to pull people away from extremism and towards respect.

Dear Friends,

We are so pleased to announce that Nissan Foundation will be the recipient of Tanenbaum’s Philanthropic Bridge Builder Award at this year’s Gala!

This award is given to organizations lifting up the non-profit sector through social change. Since its founding in 1992 to help bridge the deep societal divides brought to light after the Rodney King trial verdict, Nissan Foundation has been an exceptional leader in philanthropy, awarding more than $12 million to organizations working to build community by valuing diversity.

Students at Queens Community House learn about Chinese calligraphy through a project supported by Nissan Foundation that used Tanenbaum’s World Olympics curriculum to teach students the value of diversity.

Nissan Foundation has been a critical Tanenbaum partner in promoting justice and building respect for religious difference since 2013. Together, we have impacted thousands of students, educators and community leaders with needed resources for diversity, including our Combating Extremism campaign and World Olympics curriculum. We would not be as successful as we have been without Nissan Foundation’s help, so join us in celebrating their accomplishments on June 3rd!

With my warmest regards,
