> Did you have to wait two or three hours in line on November 8 to cast your vote? Did you wait in a long line at the polls only to find out that you were in the wrong line? Have you experienced difficulties trying to participate in same-day registration (EDR)? Have you encountered poll workers who asked for forms of identification that are not required by law? Have you experienced difficulty obtaining an absentee ballot? Have you ever been mysteriously dropped from the voting rolls at a polling place you have used for years? Have you ever received a postcard from the Registrars' Office telling you the wrong polling place, or not received a postcard at all? Do you find it confusing that you have a different polling place in even- and odd-number years? 
>
>
> If you answered Yes to any of these questions, we want to know! New Haven Votes is hosting a solutions-oriented citizens forum to review the 2016 elections process: hours-long waits to vote, polling places without ballots, and a week-long delay in tabulating official results. Come and share your story and recommend improvements.
>
> We will also discuss what it would take to adopt early voting and no-excuse absentee voting in Connecticut, and legislation that would reform the partisan registrar system of election administration.
>
> Invited Guests: 
> * Cheri Quickmire, Executive Director of Common Cause - Connecticut 
> * Maria Lamberto, Chair of League of Women Voters - New Haven / West Haven chapter
> * Lourdes Montalvo, Office of Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill

A Digital Lifeline, and Salvation via Bees: Two Great Stories from the LISC + Truist Partnership

LISC and Truist Cares have partnered to ramp up broadband and technology access, especially in rural America, and support small businesses. A $5 million grant from Truist is helping LISC address the evolving needs of entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations and families impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting recession. Read on for two remarkable stories of how that assistance is truly saving lives, and livelihoods.

LISC CEO on His Journey to LISC, and What's Happened Since

As a recent guest on In Black America, a long-running podcast that plumbs many facets of African American life, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones described the trajectory that brought him to LISC and how the organization is currently working. LISC's newest initiative, Project 10X, he explains, is a culmination and intensification of our efforts to promote racial equity and close the discriminatory health, wealth and opportunity gaps that have plagued Americans since the country's inception.

CNN Spotlights LISC's Record Efforts to Close Racial Wealth & Opportunity Gaps

Since the outbreak of the pandemic and this year's anti-racist protests, LISC has raised some $2 billion in grants, loans and equity to fund programs that aim to upend structural racism and close yawning health, wealth and opportunity gaps. An article in CNN looks at how corporate donors have stepped up to support LISC in this work and points to what will be an ongoing need. As LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones says in the piece, “This requires faithfulness over a long time to have real transformative impact. It can't just be 2020. This has to be a new chapter.”
