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.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.

Fay Darmawi: In Her Own Words

Fay Darmawi is a social practice artist who focuses on cities, storytelling, and media. She is the Founder and Executive Director of the SF Urban Film Fest, a film festival focused on civic engagement inspired by great storytelling. I spoke with her in February 2020 and again in May and July 2020.

In a Time of Crisis, Business Development Organizations Step Up

Small business owners cherish their independence, but they can also use outside advice and technical assistance to be successful—or simply to survive a crisis like the pandemic. And that's where business development organizations (BDOs) come in. LISC BDO partners link their on-the-ground networks and insight with LISC’s national scale, funding and expertise to support small businesses, in the midst of COVID, and for the future.
