Now is the time to come to the defense of our waterway!*

THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS’ PLAN TO DUMP 250,000 CUBIC YARDS OF TOXIC
DREDGING WASTE IN NEW HAVEN HARBOR.

WHERE:  Morris Cove right over the proposed dumping site (marked by orange buoys) a few hundred yards off Sea Wall Park. NON-BOATERS can demonstrate their support and view the action along with our political
representatives at Sea Wall Park.

WHEN:  Sunday, July 3rd, 2:00 to 3:15 p.m. Assemble 2:00 p.m.
Procession around orange buoys 2:30 p.m.

WHY:  Show the politicians and the ACE that the Cove and outer harbor
are recreational waters, not a dump for carcinogens. Let them see our
boating community's determination to protect New Haven Harbor's
recovering environmental health.

AFTERWARDS: You are invited to stop by at the New Haven Yacht Club for some refreshment and a chance to interact with fellow demonstrators
(see note below**)

**The NHYC dock is a short way to the west of Anthony’s Catering. Except for kayaks, canoes and dinghies that can be tied to the west side of the dock or pulled up on shore, visiting boaters are asked to anchor at the edge of the mooring field and radio on 68 for the club launch to bring you in, or sound an air horn three times.  Please
don’t tie up at vacant moorings.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

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.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
