Event Description

TOWN MEETING

WHEN: SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 2015

WHERE: STETSON LIBRARY, 202 DIXWELL AVENUE

TIME: 3-5 PM

TOPIC: POLICE AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS

Please join us to discuss concerns for public safety in New Haven. With the recent incident in which a 15 year old handcuffed girl was slammed to the ground by a police officer leaving her with a fractured shoulder and abrasions to her face it’s cause for concern. When that officer has a brutality lawsuit pending in Milford there is cause for concern. The fact that he was expeditiously exonerated after a record breaking Internal Affairs investigation and now free to patrol our community again there is cause for concern. The chief’s explanation for what many in the community feel was excessive force “When the officer saw a knife on the girl during the arrest he got scared” is cause for concern. The lack of transparency in the investigation is cause for concern. Was justice served? Join us in making that determination.

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

A Pledge to Keep Small Businesses Open for Business

A $15 million donation from Wells Fargo, part of their Open for Business Fund, will help LISC match flexible Kiva crowdfunded loans for entrepreneurs of color across the U.S. Our pre-Covid collaboration with Wells and Kiva in Puerto Rico and other disinvested places has proven the transformative benefits for individuals, families and regional economies when small businesses get fast access to capital in a crisis.
