IN PRAISE OF HONEST HEROES - IN THIS CASE - SHERO - SHERRY HUNT - FINANCIAL WHISTLE-BLOWER

How many of us KNOW the story of my whistle-blower hero Ms. Sherry Hunt?  She saved us, the US tax-payer, a lot of money by blowing the whistle about the dishonest financial practices that were going on at CitiGroup.  She is a woman of conscience, honesty and principle.  She is a woman who worked her way up from the bottom with a high school diploma; she became VP at CitiGroup.  Read about her at Bloomberg, Hunttington Post and elsewhere.  The complaint contended that senior bank personnel…

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
