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.

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

We Know How to Solve Philly’s Housing Crisis. We Just Need to Do It.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
