Moving Racial Equity and Inclusion from the Periphery to the Center: Lessons from an Incomplete Project

Living Cities’ CEO Ben Hecht said, “Once you begin to apply a racial equity and inclusion lens to your work, it changes how you see the world, and there is no going back.” But, over the last year, it has become clear that we need much more intentionality around moving from good intentions to action.

How to Think Differently about Diversity in Nonprofit Leadership: Get Comfortable with Discomfort

“Despite the evidence that systems and structures are leading to the isolation of people of color in nonprofit organizations, there still seems to be a hesitance to talk explicitly about racism in the sector,” writes Sean Thomas-Breitfeld of the Building Movement Project. Here he discusses the “nonprofit racial leadership gap.” This article is part of the ongoing EDI Series sponsored by NPQ and Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN).

Research Validates Collaborative Crime Strategies

In some communities, there is a sense that crime is insurmountable. As part of our occasional series on community development research, LISC's research chief, Chris Walker, says that the data tells another story. “The sense of futility that pervades some conversations about safety is wildly misplaced,” he writes in his latest blog. He points to outcomes research that details the success of place-based strategies. The challenge, he says, lies in cutting them to fit local circumstances.

The NBA and NBA Cares joined in to provide equipment and uniforms for the grand re-opening.
