Event Description

Join IRIS- Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services as we team up with the Yale Rep to celebrate New Haven's immigrants achieving U.S. citizenship. You are invited to the Saturday, October 6th performance of American Night: The Ballad of Juan José. Described by the LA Times as "fast-paced, gleeful, and sly," American Night is a new play by writer and performer Richard Montoya.

The play follows a young man whose obsession to pass his citizenship exam "takes him on a fantastical odyssey through U.S. history... American Night: The Ballad of Juan José is a provocative, irreverent, and hilarious mix of past and present, stereotype and truth." (from the Yale Rep website: http://www.yalerep.org/on_stage/2012-13/american.html.)

The Yale Rep has provided IRIS a group discount ticket rate. You can purchase tickets at the greatly reduced rate of $40; half of which is a tax-deductible donation to support IRIS's naturalization services for New Haven immigrants.

IRIS provides citizenship exam preparation, legal assistance for naturalization applications, and voter registration at naturalization ceremonies. Learn more about IRIS's work with immigrants at the Post-Show Conversation after the performance.

Come out and enjoy American Night with IRIS on October 6th!

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

A Pledge to Keep Small Businesses Open for Business

A $15 million donation from Wells Fargo, part of their Open for Business Fund, will help LISC match flexible Kiva crowdfunded loans for entrepreneurs of color across the U.S. Our pre-Covid collaboration with Wells and Kiva in Puerto Rico and other disinvested places has proven the transformative benefits for individuals, families and regional economies when small businesses get fast access to capital in a crisis.
