In its nearly 400 years as a place, New Haven and its citizens have enjoyed a deep and complex relationship with the water--the sound, the harbor and the rivers. We have loved the water and, usually, it has loved us back.

ADA TITLE III Litigation: A 2019 Review And Hot Trends For 2020

Posted on January 21, 2020 at 4:35pm 0 Comments

Seyfarth synopsis:  ADA Title III lawsuits flooded federal courts in 2019 and will likely continue to do so in 2020 with new theories for the courts to consider. 

We are still tallying up the end-of-year numbers, but the number of ADA Title III lawsuits filed in federal courts by the end of November 2019 (10,206) exceeded the number of such lawsuits filed in all of 2018 (10,163).  California courts continue to be the busiest with roughly 43% of the lawsuits,…

NYT Opinion: The Injustice of This Moment Is Not an ‘Aberration’

Posted on January 21, 2020 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

Ten years have passed since my book, “The New Jim Crow,” was published.

It has been an astonishing decade. Everything and nothing has changed...…

The Tragedy of the Yale Commons

Posted on December 13, 2019 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

When 18-year-old Stephen A. Schwarzman, the son of a Philadelphia dry-goods store owner, entered Yale in 1965, he took his meals, like all freshmen, in the Commons, a vast, baronial dining hall in a cluster of beaux-arts colossi that the university had constructed for its bicentennial in 1901. The Commons seemed to him like “a train station full of hundreds of people eating,” he recalls in his recently published business memoir, …

Claire Anderson is a Chicago-based engineer and manager of track construction at Union Pacific Railroad, which partners with LISC to expand access to stable, livable-wage jobs in rail and related sectors. Anderson recently sat down with LISC to discuss her career journey and why it’s important to her to help more women succeed in traditionally male-dominated fields.

Announcing the LISC Rural Promise

To fulfill our mission of catalyzing opportunity across the country, we are launching the LISC Rural Promise, a commitment to elevate our impact in rural America to 20 percent of our total over the next three years. The Rural Promise will build on 25 years of LISC's investment in and partnership-building with rural people and places. Now, we're taking it to the next level. We chose this week to launch our renewed effort in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose movement for civil rights and racial equity was rooted in rural America, where extraordinary talent, communities, businesses and natural resources are poised today to fuel a competitive national economy.

“What's Good for Rural Is Good for the Whole Country”: Q&A with Maurice A. Jones

LISC's CEO explains the how and why of the LISC Rural Promise, our organization-wide commitment to achieve 20 percent of our community development impact in rural America over the next three years.
