Event Description

PodCamp Returns to Connecticut in 2012

 

PodCampCT, a gathering where Connecticut social-media enthusiasts trade tips, swap ideas,  & get to know each other “in the real world,” is returning to New Haven on May 12.

 

Geared toward social media novices as well as experienced users, PodCampCT operates on a proven organizational scheme known as the “unconference:” Participants set an agenda of session topics the day of the event, to ensure that discussions are relevant and timely.  Traditional presentation slides and keynote speeches are scrapped, in favor of free-flowing interaction.  All participants are encouraged to contribute, and to “vote with their feet” by switching sessions if they’re not getting a useful experience.

The first PodCampCT, in October 2010, attracted nearly 100 participants, including:

Traditional-media professionals adapting their work to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media platforms;

Marketers and communicators embracing social media as central to their businesses; and

Nonprofits, artists and entrepreneurs eager to harness social media to connect with supporters, partners and customers.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
