National Conference Call for White People

http://tomficklin.blogspot.com/2014/11/national-conference-for-whit...

Please join us for an important call to engage more white people in racial justice work in the aftermath of the Grand Jury in Ferguson. We will be discussing state violence and the impact it has in all of our communities, specifically communities of color. We will share strategies for engaging white people in the current moment and beyond. The recent murders of Akai Gurley, in Brooklyn and Tamir Rice and Tanesha Anderson in Cleveland (and the list grows) are tragic reminders of the need for national coordination and bold action.

This a call for white people who are:

-- Currently or interested in organizing locally for racial justice;

-- Engaging in hard conversations with family and friends on race and need more tools

It is being convened by Showing Up for Racial Justice- SURJ (showingupforracialjustice.org) in coordination with FergusonAction.com.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
