Event Description

Please Join us for Urban Interventions, a free Tactical Urbanism Workshop on Saturday, February 8th at 3:00PM at the Bourse Co-Working Loft in Downtown New Haven.

How can an inexpensive, short-term project create long-term societal change? Guerilla Wayfinding, Parklets, DIY Crosswalks – these are all examples of an exciting trend in urban placemaking commonly referred to as Tactical Urbanism. This talk will be exceptionally unique. Our two speakers represent the public view from the street AND and the regulatory view from inside city hall: Bottom up AND top down interventions.

The Speakers:

Mike Lydon, Principal of The Street Plans Collaborative, will lead an overview alongside Dan Bartman, Senior Planner at the City of Somerville. The overview of Tactical Urbanism will equip attendees with an understanding of how to plan, fund, and implement projects. Information about how the City of Somerville, and others, have integrated Tactical Urbanism into the municipal project delivery process will also be provided.

Join us to learn about how other communities have used Tactical Urbanism to bring about meaningful change in their cities and towns, and to inspire the practice in the Elm City.

We encourage all attendees to review the Tactical Urbanism Guidebook (Volume I and Volume II) before attending. This event is free and open to all.

“It Has To Start With the Children”: Q&A With Juanita Woods

Rubinger Fellow Juanita Woods is a community development practitioner and city council member in Monroe, LA who specializes in helping people skill up to take on living-wage jobs with local employers. She spoke with LISC about her fellowship project to provide apprenticeships for young people, the challenges of wealth-building in historically underserved communities, and the inspiration she gets from empowering youth on their life journeys.

The Long Journey to a Healing Home

In honor of Veterans Day this year, we are highlighting Perry Point Veterans Village, an extraordinary supportive housing community for homeless vets created by HELP USA in tandem with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, NEF and many other dedicated partners. The development was 10 years in the making and involved a veritable high-wire act of aligning bureaucracies and funding sources and overcoming political opposition. The result is worth the struggle: 75 safe, affordable homes for veterans who'd been surviving on the streets and now have a bona fide new lease on life.

From Recidivism to Rebuilding Lives: Q&A With Kelly Orians

Kelly Orians is an attorney, a 2019 Rubinger Fellow and the co-director of the First 72+, a ground-breaking New Orleans re-entry program for people returning from incarceration. Orians spoke with LISC about the state of criminal justice in Louisiana, the challenges and successes her clients experience, and how her organization is helping lift the burden of entrenched bureaucracy and predatory debt that keeps so many people from gaining real freedom after release.
