Event Description

Every five years, Congress authorizes several of the programs that feed our nation’s children when school’s in and out. A recent USDA release shows that hunger has continued to rise across the country as the economy flounders, affecting as many as one in four children. Here in Connecticut, 13% of children are hungry or at risk of hunger. We must speak up and act now!

During the 2008 Presidential campaign, President Obama pledged to end child hunger by 2015. This year will be our best opportunity to capitalize on that pledge, and make sure that the Child Nutrition Programs are adequately improved and funded.

Join providers, community members and advocates as we present both the national and local landscape, along with many opportunities for advocacy with Connecticut’s members of Congress. They need to hear from us in 2010 more than ever before.

We will have guest panelists from Washington, DC, and elsewhere. Join us for this free webinar.

Who? You, other advocates, members of the general public
What? Information and advocacy steps for you to take NOW!
Where? Online, in the comfort of your home or office
When? Tuesday, January 12, 10 am to 11:30 am.

This webinar is a partnership of the Connecticut Association for Human Services and End Hunger Connecticut!

Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS), is a statewide non-profit organization that works to end poverty and engage, equip, and empower all families in Connecticut to build a secure future.

End Hunger Connecticut! is a statewide anti-hunger and food security organization. Focusing on advocacy, outreach, education and research, EHC! serves as a comprehensive anti-hunger resource for community organizations, legislators, and low-income families.

Setting the Stage for an Equitable Small Business Recovery

Since the onset of the pandemic, LISC has equipped 16,000 small business owners with relief and resilience grants. But to foster opportunity and long-term resiliency for all entrepreneurs who confront entrenched inequities, including people of color, women, immigrants and refugees, and people with lower incomes and wealth, we need a robust universe of small business “ecosystems”: the network of capital, services, and supports that every enterprise needs to get on its feet and grow.

Investing in Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure

As part of an ongoing blog series, LISC’s Anna Smukowski looks at the way LISC is advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a range of activities supported by LISC Impact Notes, including investments that support Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.

Care First, Jails Last

Los Angeles County has selected LISC to implement key parts of an extraordinary initiative to provide alternatives to incarceration. The $61 million, two-year pilot is working to divert people from jail and instead offer services to help overcome housing instability and mental health and substance abuse challenges. It will also provide a model for how to turn the page on mass incarceration.
