Event Description

Open call. Give Voice. 
WPAA-TV, as a theater space, has joined with other theaters around the nation to give voice to being a safe space for all persons; inviting diverse opinion, dissent and argument and artistic expression optimistic that active listening facilitates and cultivates community engagement within the courageous exchange of ideas.
Do you have words to share (from 30 seconds to 3 minutes) as a citizen, ACTORvist, Nonprofit leader, or Preacher about hope, sanctuary, fear, diversity. Do you wish to inspire or merely share? Let us know. Performance level participants please PM Director Noël Ramos on FB or send inquiry via email to wpaatv@gmail.com subject BE A Light or just show up Jan 19th 5 PM at wpaatv and we will incorporate you into the community event as feels right for the gathered.
This will be LIVE TV from 5:30 to 6:30 PM followed by refreshments and gathering of more voice clips.
Nationally: Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a "ghost light" on in a darkened theater, these artists and communities will make a pledge to continued vigilance and increased advocacy with an ongoing commitment to work for social justice and equity in the coming years,serving these principles.

  • - Safety of persons, regardless of race, class, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • - Diverse opinions, dissent, and argument are not only tolerated, but invited.
  • - Active listening and courageous exchange are fundamental values.
  • - Collective action, activism, and community engagement, both within and outside the walls of the theater, are cultivated, encouraged, and supported

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.
