Hi Guys,

Really excited to see some of these projects get started. We have been helping fund a few other things in NHV as well. Examples of what they look like on SeeClickFix might give some context to the big picture. 

Example 1: http://seeclickfix.com/issues/229653-support-a-2nd-cardboard-bus-bench

Example 2: http://seeclickfix.com/issues/229256-support-the-east-rock-festival...

To get started:

1) please report your fundable project on SeeClickFix 

2) Email me to let me know you have done it and how much money you are looking to raise

3) I'll give you a paypal button and we're off to the races.

Restorative Practices: A Toolbox for Turbulent Times

Transcription of John and Peter's May 8, 2018 conversation with Thom Allena about his work in getting justice out of courthouses and into neighborhoods. Thom is a community and organizational psychologist who for nearly thirty-five years has worked in the fields of community and restorative justice, applying creative approaches to respond to crime, violence and group conflict. In Thom’s community justice work, citizens are invited to play active rather than passive roles in determining the shape of justice and become more directly involved in redressing the quality of life issues that are breached by crime.

The Real Stories Behind the Unemployment Story

An article in The Guardian examines the full and complex story behind the nation’s jobless numbers as it plays out in Kansas City.

Jones.

LISC Institute Retools for the Future

Nearly a decade ago, LISC created the Institute for Comprehensive Community Development as a platform for the dynamic exchange of knowledge and ideas about our shared work, and as a clearing house for best practices. Since then, it has trained thousands of people in the field and shared hundred of articles, opinions and research reports. Now, with renewed energy and leadership, we are delighted to be relaunching the Institute, equipped with an interactive website and a trove of fresh tools, views and data that will help propel our work into the future. Read all about it in a message from the Institute's founders.
