Event Description

Many New Haveners came out in 2016 and 2017 to support the Standing Rock Sioux in their fight against Energy Transfer Partners’ (ETP) Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). Now we are standing in solidarity with the indigenous people and other residents of coastal Louisiana to stop another ETP project – the Bayou Bridge pipeline. (More info at link below.)

New Haven Stands with Standing Rock is joining in a global Week of Action to highlight the harm the pipeline and the dirty oil that will flow through it will cause to the fragile ecosystem of the bayous, the people who live there, and the climate. ETP has one of the worst spill records of any pipeline company – including leaks that have already happened on the Dakota Access pipeline.

And, just as Wells Fargo helped fund DAPL, it is providing millions to ETP to build the Bayou Bridge pipeline. This is yet one more reason why the City of New Haven should move its millions in operating funds out of Wells Fargo, which not only funds many dirty and unsustainable energy projects, it also has time and again cheated its own customers and was recently blocked by the Federal Reserve from expanding its business until it corrects its criminal culture – an unprecedented step that raises questions about its financial viability. It’s not in New Haven’s interest to invest in such an institution.

WHAT: Rally in solidarity with #NoBayouBridge and for moving New Haven’s money from Wells Fargo bank

WHEN: Thursday, March 1, 4:30-5:30 p.m.

WHERE: Outside New Haven City Hall, 165 Church St., moving to Wells Fargo Bank, 205 Church St.

Connecting Local People to the Prosperity of Place

Our latest LISC white paper examines emerging strategies that connect industrial district revitalization to local workforce efforts and how investments in industrial districts can fuel programs designed to train low-income residents and ensure they access local jobs. The paper takes a close look at how this plays out in the field with two case studies from Brooklyn, NY and one from Jackson, MI. Read on!

Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.
