What are your questions, concerns? Come and join our community think-tank! Bring your ideas and inspirations as we work on building community together!!

Possible questions to explore:

* If we could no longer afford or access modern medical care as we have known it, could “barefoot doctors” and herbalists fill the gap?
-What do we really mean by wellbeing?
* How might we develop a culture of wellness, returning the power of basic health to ordinary people?
* What would it take to set up “wellbeing clinics” where health would be understood as an active and positive process? Could we teach/create a way of life so healthy that medical care would seldom be needed?
* How will we cope with the inevitable stresses of transition to a lower energy future?
* How will we care for those suffering depression, anxiety, psychosomatic illness, despair– in case magic pills are not available?
* Will we be able to let go of our individualism and find the support we will need by creating extended family-like or “tribal” networks of mutual aid and care?
* If public health infrastructure (esp. water and sewage) were to fail, what other arrangements might we make to prevent communicable diseases and epidemics?
* What about withdrawal symptoms as we can no longer maintain our usual addictive practices, such as high-energy consumption, media mainlining, speed, frenetic activism?
* If a lot of folks hit bottom at the same time, will there be enough 12 step groups to get us through?

A Digital Lifeline, and Salvation via Bees: Two Great Stories from the LISC + Truist Partnership

LISC and Truist Cares have partnered to ramp up broadband and technology access, especially in rural America, and support small businesses. A $5 million grant from Truist is helping LISC address the evolving needs of entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations and families impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting recession. Read on for two remarkable stories of how that assistance is truly saving lives, and livelihoods.

LISC CEO on His Journey to LISC, and What's Happened Since

As a recent guest on In Black America, a long-running podcast that plumbs many facets of African American life, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones described the trajectory that brought him to LISC and how the organization is currently working. LISC's newest initiative, Project 10X, he explains, is a culmination and intensification of our efforts to promote racial equity and close the discriminatory health, wealth and opportunity gaps that have plagued Americans since the country's inception.

CNN Spotlights LISC's Record Efforts to Close Racial Wealth & Opportunity Gaps

Since the outbreak of the pandemic and this year's anti-racist protests, LISC has raised some $2 billion in grants, loans and equity to fund programs that aim to upend structural racism and close yawning health, wealth and opportunity gaps. An article in CNN looks at how corporate donors have stepped up to support LISC in this work and points to what will be an ongoing need. As LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones says in the piece, “This requires faithfulness over a long time to have real transformative impact. It can't just be 2020. This has to be a new chapter.”
