NPQ & YNPN Series on Diversity, Inclusion, and Justice

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.

LISC CEO to Congress: Here’s What Opportunity Zones Need To Succeed

Maurice A. Jones testified before the Joint Economic Committee of Congress this week, urging its members to implement Opportunity Zones in ways that will truly benefit Americans in underinvested communities. The policy can spur billions in private investment in the country’s most distressed census tracts and play a major role in closing the opportunity gap, he said. But we need federal tax incentives and other strategies to help the program succeed.

Crowdfunding + LISC Give Small Businesses a Big Boost

Small businesses are a major dynamo of innovation and growth in our economy—they make up more than 99 percent of U.S. enterprises and create two out of every three new jobs. A partnership between LISC and the crowdfunding platform Kiva is connecting small business entrepreneurs across the country with the capital and knowhow they need to succeed.

Crossing a Bridge to Success: One Mother’s Story

In honor of Mother’s Day, we are sharing the story of Paulette Arnold, a single parent of four who is turning her family’s financial life around—and building a rewarding career—after completing a LISC-supported Bridges to Opportunity program in San Diego.

Lamont Gets Endorsement, Blocks Ganim

Christine Stuart / CTNewsJunkie photo HARTFORD, CT —There was little question that Ned Lamont would get the Democratic Party’s endorsement for governor. The real question was could he deny Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim ballot access for a primary.
