Today is Tanenbaum’s #givebackwednesday!

Download and share our tips for Respectful Communication

Dear Friends,

Yesterday was #givingtuesday. And I’m sure you were bombarded with worthy causes asking for your support. To those of you who gave to make the world a better place—in whatever way you chose to do so—we say thanks.

In honor of what we call #givebackwednesday, I want to share our tips for Respectful Communication. At a time when people are talking about (and worried about) conversations at upcoming holiday dinners, great communication is one of the best gifts you can share—with family, neighbors and colleagues.

Thank you, again, for all you do.

Cheers,

Joyce

GIVING TUESDAY – America in Transition!

Dear Friends,

This month, I’ve heard from so many of you from across the religious spectrum. Your reactions to the election, the holiday season and the future are not uniform. But most of you are concerned about societal division, rising hate crimes and the fear captured by a Muslim friend, who wrote, “I will never, ever, ever forget the night my babies went to sleep crying in fear.”

Please take a look at my latest article on The Huffington Post, Five Reflections on America in Transition. It includes some thoughts on what I’ve heard, my observations on how Americans are responding—and how we can respond—to mitigate fear, cross the divide, and rekindle hope.

At Tanenbaum we know that establishing a just society is a long-term effort – but we take daily action to create measurable improvements in the U.S. and across the world.

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday – please donate to Tanenbaum because our nation needs Tanenbaum more than ever.

No child should ever fall asleep crying from fear, in the U.S. or anywhere!

Thank you,
Joyce S. Dubensky,
Tanenbaum CEO
