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

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.

How CDFIs, Including LISC, Are Empowering Charlotte Neighborhoods

A recent story from Charlotte Business Journal discusses how CDFIs like LISC are working to bring opportunity to many of the city’s underinvested communities. From financing support for affordable housing developers, to grants for small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, LISC Charlotte ED Ralphine Caldwell and others describe how the CDFIs are leveraging available partnerships to make each dollar invested in the city count.

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.
