NPQ & YNPN Series on Diversity, Inclusion, and Justice

What Does It Look Like for a Community to Own Its Future?

In today’s world—perhaps more so than at any other time in recent history—the future of places big and small will not be determined by a singular leader or multinational corporation but rather by the people who live there. This article is the latest installment in the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Series co-sponsored by YNPN and NPQ.

Justice from Within: The Death Penalty and a New Vision for Criminal Justice through a Racial Justice Lens

For too long, US criminal justice has been based on retribution, with the death penalty set forth as the ultimate punishment. Not only has this system failed to promote public safety, it results in persistent racial bias. A new paradigm based on restorative justice that can heal communities, especially communities of color, is desperately needed.

Nonprofit Professionals: Don’t Let Email Spoil Your Summer Vacation

Mobile phones and 24/7 connectivity blur the lines between personal and work time, especially during summer break or vacation.  And according to recent polls, some 62% of people check their work email while on vacation. And that can ruin your time at the beach and more importantly prevent you from reaping the full benefits of taking break.… Read More

The Well-Being & Equity Bridging (WEB) Network

This concept is very exciting to me as I’ve noticed in my own work as a trainer focusing on well-being and self-care, how these topics intersect with other disciplines.… Read More

Living in a poor neighborhood changes everything about your life

Posted by Lee Cruz on August 13, 2018 at 3:33pm 0 Comments

In 1940, a white developer wanted to build a neighborhood in Detroit. So he asked the US Federal Housing Administration to back a loan. The FHA, which was created just six years earlier to help middle-class families buy homes, said no because the development was too close to an "inharmonious" racial group. Meaning black people.

It wasn't surprising. The housing administration …

Recasting the Narratives That Shape Our Lives

A leader in journalism innovation, transformative change, and employee and community engagement describes how innovators in journalism are reimagining and experimenting with what journalism might look like today.

Rediscovering Welcome

Creating welcoming places is a key step to ensure we can all feel a sense of belonging and worthiness. To welcome means to really "see" the person walking through the door, to see their gifts and to be open to receiving help, wisdom and guidance from the person we are meeting or helping.

Strengthening the Role of Faith-Based Organizations to Support Emergency Preparedness

A new case study by the Tamarack Institute shows how faith groups can add great value to neighborhoods in responding to local emergencies.

LISC in the WSJ: Helping NYC Corner Stores Keep Up With Neighborhood Change

An article in The Wall Street Journal details a creative program to help neighborhood bodegas update their look and stock, and keep pace with demand as new, younger clientele moves in. Together with longtime partner Cypress Hills Local Development Corp, LISC is spearheading the "Commercial Corridor Challenge," supporting small businesses to prosper—not flounder—as demographics change.

Healthcare Partnerships That Help Heal People and Communities

In a blog for the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Healthcare Quarterly, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones makes the case for pioneering partnerships between healthcare organizations and community development, uniting to upend the roots of poor health. LISC’s collaborations with ProMedica and Bon Secours Health System, among other companies, are powerful examples of how our combined assets, knowledge and experience can begin to close America’s longevity gap.

Want to Stanch the Homelessness Crisis in California? Vote for This Bond

That’s the message in a powerful op-ed by LISC San Diego director Ricardo Flores for the Union-Tribune. A proposed affordable housing bond could funnel badly needed capital into the creation of homes targeted for the state’s most vulnerable residents, which would ease the extreme housing shortage and stoke the economy at the same time.
