Neighborhoods: What is Working

Institutional Precipitation

Institutions can enable citizen action if they can be a precipitant rather than a programmatic intervener. A precipitating action avoids defining for neighbors what should be done, how it should be done and who should do it. Instead, it acts to precipitate citizens performing these three actions.

Organizing the Unorganizables

The leader in the drug-use harm elimination movement, Ann Livingston talks about her work as a community organizer dedicated to working at the local, regional and national levels to improve the lives of people who use illegal drugs.

Life after FIX

Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU) co-founder Ann Livingston talks about the successes and setbacks in establishing Insite, Vancouver's supervised injection site and the only one of its kind in North America.

It’s Time to Help More Communities Prevent Crime

A Study of Two Americas—and How to Bring Them Closer

A new study on race and economic mobility in the United States by economists Raj Chetty and Nathaniel Hendren stresses the role that neighborhoods can play in closing the country’s yawning, race-based opportunity gap. In the blog that follows, David Greenberg, LISC’s new director of Research and Evaluation, unpacks the lessons of the study, and posits how the findings can help guide the work of LISC and its partners going forward.
