nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information

New Haven Bike Month was a celebration of biking culture this past May 2015 in collaboration with Elm City Cycling, the New Haven Department of Transportation, the New Haven Parks Department, and many other community members. It included over 160+ events, including over 50 large group rides, 30 bike repair clinics, 5 Open Streets events, and much more. 

We had two main goals with New Haven Bike Month:

1. To promote the already tremendous number of biking activities happening in New Haven.

2. And to expand -- by neighborhood, type of rider, etc. -- what it means to be a part of the biking community in this city.

We are very proud of what we were able to accomplish and begin during this past May. Movements, however, are only sustainable with consistent and regular reflection on both the successes and weaknesses. In early June, after sending handfuls of Thank You letters to our partners, the New Haven Bike Month organizers, volunteers, and participants met up for an After-Potluck/Debrief to discuss what worked, what didn't works, future goals, and next steps. In addition, a survey was sent around to folks who were unable to attend the debriefing session.

Here is a link to the summarized debrief notes.

Have feedback as well? We would be thrilled to listen, whether you heard of Bike Month of not, whether you participated in Bike Month or not, your thoughts are extremely valuable. Here is a link to survey.

Combatting a Water Crisis with Entrepreneurship, and Heart

Jonathan Quarles is a Flint, MI small business owner who received a $10,000 grant from LISC and Verizon to help weather the pandemic's economic crisis. His business is a story worth telling: Quarles harvests and distributes clean water from the atmosphere, creating jobs, opportunity and "empowering the city that raised me" in the bargain.

In Pursuit of a Shared Humanity

LISC stands in unity with the protests that are sweeping our country, and their core message—that every life is sacred, says Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, in a video message. We are committed, he affirms, to continuing the work to dismantle structural racism and create an equitable America for all.

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.
