How Life Became an Endless, Terrible Competition

In the summer of 1987, I graduated from a public high school in Austin, Texas, and headed northeast to attend Yale. I then spent nearly 15 years studying at various universities—the London School of Economics, the University of Oxford, Harvard, and finally Yale Law School—picking up a string of degrees along the way. Today, I teach at Yale Law, where my students unnervingly resemble my younger self: They are, overwhelmingly, products of professional…

Facebook Pledges $150 Million to Bay’s Future Fund and Affordable Housing

Thanks to a generous—and momentous—commitment of $150 million from Facebook, the innovative Bay’s Future Fund has nearly reached its $500 million goal in less than one year since its launch. Now, LISC will help put these dollars to work promoting affordable housing development in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The “Ripple Effect” of Investing in Rural America

We need to look at the impact of investing in rural community development on its own terms, argues Suzanne Anarde, outgoing vice president and director of Rural LISC in an essay for Shelterforce.
