Moving Planet CT, September 24th in New Haven CT

Moving Connecticut: A Day To Get Beyond Fossil Fuels
State-wide Action in New Haven, CT – Sat 9/24 @ 4pm – http://350CT.org/move


Our communities are ready for a clean energy future, and it’s time to rally the troops! On September 24 join people from across the state and a fast-growing coalition of civic organizations, faith communities, non-profits and businesses as we converge on New Haven with one common goal: moving past fossil fuels to a brighter future and a healthier planet. Many towns are hosting events in the morning, and then we’ll all come together on the New Haven Green at 4pm on 9/24 for a rally, critical mass bike ride, music, talkback with local/state political leaders, opportunities to get involved in your community, and a bike-powered outdoor screening of the movie Wall-E!

Around the globe glaciers are melting, crops are failing, and extreme weather is becoming the norm. Moving Connecticut is part of 350.org’s “Moving Planet” global day of action, and together with others around the world we will show our leaders on 9/24 that our state is ready to leave dirty energy behind and make the rapid, responsible transition to clean energy that our world needs. 9/24 Moving CT is about showing our numbers, showing our resolve, and showing that we are already making a real difference with solutions like cycling and sustainable transportation, saving energy, community gardens and local farming, tree plantings, and faith-based stewardship.

That’s why we need you. This is the chance for our grassroots movement to make a bold statement — one that will make waves here in Connecticut and inspire millions around the world. We need you to join us and reach out to your friends and to organizations to tell them 9/24 is not-to-be-missed! 350 Connecticut is a grassroots all-volunteer organization, and whether you can spend 10 minutes or 10 hours, your time will make a difference. Learn more, help out, or get in touch at http://350ct.org/move, or write us at organizers -at- 350CT -dot- org.

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.

Verizon and LISC Come Together to Support Small Businesses with COVID-19 Recovery Fund

An investment of $2.5 million from Verizon is making it possible for LISC to begin offering critical relief and resiliency-building support to small businesses facing immediate financial threat because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will go to make grants of up to $10,000, especially to entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically under-served places who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital. Verizon will highlight and bolster these efforts through their inaugural "Pay It Forward Live" online concert series.

A Message from LISC About COVID-19

Along with much of the world, we are closely monitoring the rapidly unfolding news of the COVID-19 pandemic. As ever, we are committed to meeting the needs of our partners and the communities we serve, and to supporting the wellbeing of our employees and the people and places where we live and work. Here are some of the things we are doing to respond to this unprecedented situation.

Have You Heard About “Women in Construction Week”?

We have, and it’s right in line with our commitment to skilling up women to take on well-paying jobs in growth industries. LISC L.A. program assistant Samantha Salmon weighs in on how recognizing women in the building fields is a means for paving the path for our sisters, and how LISC invests in creating opportunities for girls and women to succeed in non-traditional fields.
