Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

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.

Who Has the Skills to Build Community? We All Do

Transcription of John and Peter's September 12th conversation with YES! Magazine co-founder Sarah van Gelder on her 12,000-mile cross-country journey learning from people who were re-making America from the ground up and how it led to starting up a new project: PeoplesHub, an online space where communities can learn and share the skills of making powerful change.

Open Streets Project Revamped

We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

#CraftingSomethingGreat in Duluth

In an op-ed for the Duluth News Tribune, Pam Kramer enumerates the plans, investments, collaborations and creative sparks that have turned an area of blight and brownfield into the Lincoln Park Craft District. The humming, entrepreneurial neighborhood has become a model for how to leverage local craft manufacturing to fuel community revitalization, says Duluth LISC’s executive director.

In San Diego, LISC is an Engine that Accelerates Opportunity

An in-depth article in the San Diego Union Tribune touted LISC’s new fund to spur affordable housing creation in a city facing a serious shortage. We beg to differ with the “little-known” descriptor in the article’s title, but the account of LISC’s 25 years of work in underinvested San Diego neighborhoods illustrates our role perfectly.

A Safe, Affordable Haven for LGBTQ Seniors

Town Hall Apartments in Chicago is an extraordinary—and rare—example of affordable housing geared for LGBTQ seniors, many of whom enter their later years with few resources after a lifetime of discrimination. It’s community development at its best, helping people access opportunities and stabilize their lives. In recognition of LGBTQ History Month, we throw a spotlight on Town Hall and hope it will serve as a path-breaking model for communities everywhere.
