Event Description

For the fifth consecutive year, the Arts Council of Greater New Haven is pleased to partner with CT Transit in presenting Exact Change, a series of live performances on five local bus routes. Performances will take place on Saturday, May 5th, and are free with CT Transit’s regular fare.

 

This year’s iteration of Exact Change brings repeat performances from artists Sherece M. Sellem, a mime that has appeared in music videos for artists including Faith Evans, and Verbal Slap, a Connecticut spoken word poetry collective that will bring the art of poetry and the art of performance together as one.

 

In addition, three new artist groups will perform this year; Salt and Pepper Gospel Choir, a local gospel mainstay, Kings Band of Harmony: Brass Shout Band, one of Connecticut’s best kept secrets, and the Elm City Dance Collective, who will certainly accomplish their mission to “reinvent the performance experience” during Saturday’s event.

 

All routes converge at the New Haven Green, where riders, artists and the public can mingle to the music of The Kings Band of Harmony: Brass Shout Band from approximately 1:15-2 pm.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
