Event Description

Dr. James Hansen, Climate scientist & former head of the NASA Goddard Institute

We know you are concerned about climate change and perhaps looking for a new way to truly make a difference. The challenge is so large that governments must get involved. Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) has been effective in getting legislators in Washington to begin to move on climate - with 28 R & 28 D currently in the House Climate Solutions Caucus.

We are holding a Climate Advocate Training workshop on Sunday, October 8, 2017 in the Bowers Auditorium, Sage Hall, 205 Prospect St, New Haven, CT. Please join us and spread the word to your peers, friends, and colleagues by inviting them via this event page. 

The workshop is free and will gather concerned citizens together to inspire and teach us the nuts and bolts of building political will and effecting change in positive, constructive ways. Our goal is to break through the myth that we don’t make a difference!

The workshop will include inspiring and provocative presentations, group and paired discussions, a time in which we will learn to speak about an issue, and a time to practice meeting with a member of Congress, all as a step toward having our members of Congress become champions for a sustainable climate. You will all have the opportunity to join the CCL of Greater New Haven group.

Roger Kuhns, the CCL Mystic, CT co-leader and state coordinator for CCL in Connecticut, will be leading the workshop.

When you are filling out the registration form, please let us know if you will be able to bring any snacks to share! We will have some snacks for you but more are definitely welcome!

Again, please let us know if you are planning to attend. You can RSVP http://bit.ly/CCL-OCT8.

Investing in People, Place, and Resilient Rural Economies: Q&A with Caitlin Cain

"The infrastructure of our communities is not just physical; it is also social and economic,” said Caitlin Cain, the new director of Rural LISC. In a wide-ranging conversation, she talks about the impact of COVID-19, the importance of investing in communities of color and the tremendous range of rural innovation that already exists—and needs appropriate capital to grow.

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
