Both public opinion and public awareness of the Nonprofit Sector are abysmal. People still think that community organizers have no actual responsibilities and thats even if they know what community organizers are at all. When someone is told to imagine a nonprofit organization, they most likely see men with copious amounts of facial hair and body odor, or people begging for money with more vigor than the people they are serving. Our proud nation was built on the foundations of voluntary action and community engagement, its time for us to start acting like it again.
