Event Description

We are excited to start the LunchTALK! series for 2015. Please join us Tuesday, April 21st from 11-1pm at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven for “Banished” a film that places these events in the context of present day race relations, by following three concrete cases of towns that remain all-white to this day. Following the film, a discussion will be taken place with the question, “What’s the impact of being ‘displaced’ from your community?” Lunch will be provided and there will be complimentary parking adjacent to our building. Please bring your parking ticket upstairs with you for validation. A flyer is attached with details, seating is limited; please RSVP to me at cchan@cfgnh.org by Friday, April 17th.  Feel free to pass the invitation along to those who you think might be interested in attending.

Laying the Cash Tracks for Community Impact

LISC CFO Christina Travers is among the impact investing leaders who contributed commentaries to a new book, The Social Justice Investor, and joined a panel discussion at today’s book launch. In her essay, “Laying the Cash Tracks,” (reprinted here) she explains the evolution of LISC’s capital markets experience—noting how discouraging Wall Street conversations eventually led to transformative, community-focused investments.

Sharing the Story of Social Justice Investing

With the launch of the new book, The Social Justice Investor, LISC’s Christina Travers reflects on the ways that CDFIs have tapped the capital markets to deepen their impact—working to upend lingering misconceptions among some investors. "Whether we are financing affordable housing, small businesses, health, safety, climate resilience, racial equity or jobs, we see financial performance and local impact as part of the same whole."

EPA Awards GRID Alternatives Solar for All Grant

LISC partner GRID Alternatives has been awarded a $249,800,000 Solar for All grant from the EPA to advance renewable and clean energy sources for affordable housing communities across the country. “The grant is an incredible boon to the movement to decarbonize homes and lower energy costs that burden millions of everyday Americans,” said Michael T. Pugh, president and CEO of LISC.
