The Three Little Kids is a Hip Hop Cultural awareness play which is designed to self-empower our community by coursing the residents through a rite of passage. The production ensemble will journey through a rite of passage by learning, producing and performing a full scale production. The 3LK is produced to bridge the gap between adults and young people to heal the misunderstanding about Hip Hop culture. We see the future in which all organizations can work hand and hand to bring back the unity in our communities. We believe that this will continue to inspire the neighborhood to imagine and build its own destiny.

The Three Little Kids is based on the fairy, The Three Little Pigs, which has a Hip Hop twist to it. The Three Little Kids is a story of three kids who grow up in the community and would do anything for a record deal. The three little kids have real talent and never realized they had enough knowledge, wisdom and understanding to get them where they wanted to go.

Wolf Daddy discovers the kids first and uses them to get his pockets phatt. He preyed upon Dumb because he knew that Dumb never like to read or write. He preyed upon Deaf because he knew that Deaf never like to hear what anyone kicked in his ear and Blind, Blind never saw her future, he just live for now. Wolf Daddy knew she was materialistic and had his peanut gallery Huff and Puff seduce her with jewelry and rides wherever she wanted to go.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

Home for the Holidays, and for Good

This is the story of Michael Elliot, who was homeless and fighting cancer when his life took a sharp turn for the better. Through a unique partnership with ProMedica Health in Toledo, where he was receiving treatment, Elliot was introduced to a LISC Financial Opportunity Center. There, he worked with a financial coach, who helped him secure a safe, affordable apartment and even begin saving money—all within a few months. Said Elliot, “It’s the greatest thing in the world that I have a place to call home.”

Kindling Hope in a Chicago Neighborhood

You can feel the change, say residents. Police data show it, too. In just one year, crime and violence have dropped precipitously in Englewood, a Chicago neighborhood where LISC has long partnered with local leaders, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune. How did it change? A concerted mix of strategic policing and community engagement, says Julia Ryan, LISC’s VP for health & safety—the very approach LISC supports in Englewood and dozens of communities across the country.

LISC Pledges New Commitment to Health

LISC has invested deeply in the health and wellbeing of people in the places where we work for 40 years. But we’re upping the ante. President and CEO Maurice Jones calls partners to join us in upending health disparities through tailored investments in communities, and designing a plan to assess the health outcomes of our broad work in economic development, housing, safety and financial stability.
