Forging Racial Equity in the Valley of the Sun

In recognition of Black History Month, LISC Phoenix program officer Dominic Braham reflects on the African-American history of his city, and how the influence of a historic “dividing line” between downtown and the redlined neighborhoods of South Phoenix still shapes its communities. Developing local leadership of color, connecting people with the region’s prosperity, and committing to racial equity as the city develops, he explains, are keys to authentic civic engagement and a more inclusive Phoenix.

Providence Journal: $360K from Citi Foundation & LISC = A Big Boost for RI Job Seekers

The Providence Journal reports on two local community organizations receiving $360,000 from Citi Foundation and LISC to grow their support for job seekers. The grants will expand their work to support “individuals who have faced obstacles in their desire to build new lives.” As Jeanne Cola, who heads LISC Rhode Island noted in the article, “When we help someone find a good — or better — job, we help both families and communities thrive.”

$10 Million Citi Foundation-LISC Partnership Will Ready Workers for 21st-Century Jobs
