Event Description

Greetings!  

Following up on our December 8th New Haven Promise Zone Community Forum and as a kick-off to the next phase of planning for community transformation, we are inviting those who have been involved in the New Haven Promise Zone initiative to come together to break bread and build our connections on: 

Tuesday, February 10 from 4:00-6:00 PM at the 

Immanuel Baptist Church Hall, 1324 Chapel Street, New Haven. 

This will be both a celebration of many new and ongoing initiatives and innovations in New Haven and an opportunity to get to know each other and our work.  

The event will include an exploratory conversation in small groups on how we can work together differently going forward to create secure and empowering relationships for the people who depend on us as community agencies and leaders.  

We will also present briefly plans for the next phase of work on the City Transformation Plan that will get underway in February.   

We want to acknowledge and promote the sense of New Haven as a caring, loving place with a long tradition of social justice and a commitment to equity.  I hope you can join us. 

Please use this form to RSVP to let us know if you will attend.

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.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
