Event Description

We need you and other health reform supporters to take action next Thursday in New Haven.

CT's Health Insurance Exchange is hosting a public input session: 

"Healthy Chat"

Thursday December 6, 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Hill Regional Career High School, 140 Legion Ave, New Haven

Details at www.healthychatct.com

We need to turn out and speak up next Thursday because consumers and small businesses are not being heard in Exchange decision-making.  CT’s private insurance companies have too much influence over the Exchange, and too many important decisions are being made without public input.

Hundreds of people fought to make the Exchange more accountable in the last year (see example here) -- and it's working.   The Exchange is now hosting seven sessions around the state to gather public input. (Coverage of the first session on Tuesday in Hartford is here.) They need to hear, loud and clear:

  • The Exchange must make health care more affordable:  insurance costs too much in CT and subsidies are not large enough.  Thousands of the very people health reform is supposed to help will be uninsured if the Exchange does not make insurance affordable
  • The Exchange must support more insurance choices -- non-profits, public options -- not just private insurance plans
  • The Exchange will be more successful if it seeks public involvement and partners with community-based organizations to reach out

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

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.

The “Ripple Effect” of Investing in Rural America

We need to look at the impact of investing in rural community development on its own terms, argues Suzanne Anarde, outgoing vice president and director of Rural LISC in an essay for Shelterforce. Projects may not touch the numbers of people or generate the returns of urban investments, but their effects are every bit as important, and ripple far and wide through the small, intricately connected networks of rural life.

Facebook Pledges $150 Million to Bay’s Future Fund and Affordable Housing

Now, LISC will help put these dollars to work promoting affordable housing development and helping shrink the wealth gap in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

“Café, Cultura, Vida”

As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to a close, we checked in with Sandra Flores, owner of Azukar Coffee, a small business percolating on the South Side of Phoenix that shows just how important a local gathering place can be to a neighborhood.
