Veterans of Color Screening and Discussion

Those of us who work in the non-profit community and or nurture non profit partnerships it can be said often "rely" upon those that are "under developed" for our livelihood. My on going quandary is to understand further how Veterans of Color, have fought for the country since it's inception in spite of full citizenship barriers being erected. As we all strive to decrease the inequities perhaps this upcoming exclusive film screening might aide in increasing our service delivery…

Health Equity

I am proud to say that I am a Ct Health Foundation Fellow, Class of 2011 and have been communicating health issues since my days as editor of the Inner City from 1990-2000. Nonetheless this health disparity-health equity still confuses me and yes  still angers me. At any rate many efforts are underway to diagnose, treat and eradicate the volatility of quality of life access. Perhaps you may know some soldiers eager to join the crusade. Please consider sharing the position opening. Thanks in…

A Letter to the White House Announces $11 Million Vaccine Access Fund

In a letter to the Biden-Harris Administration, which has called for corporate America to help in the fight to end the pandemic, the CEOs of Uber, Paypal, Walgreens and LISC announced a new Vaccine Access Fund that will connect people with free rides to COVID-19 vaccine sites. LISC will administer the fund, helping close the gap for thousands of people, many of them seniors and others living in under-resourced communities, who have not been vaccinated yet because of lack of transportation.

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L. Glover details how the fund tackles more than the transportation gap that is keeping tens of thousands of Americans from accessing COVID-19 vaccines. "The fund offers a practical solution to an immediate problem," writes Glover. "But this is absolutely part of our larger efforts to address equity as well."

LISC, Uber, PayPal and Walgreens Introduce Vaccine Access Fund

LISC, PayPal, Uber and Walgreens have announced the launch of their new Vaccine Access Fund, which allows customers to donate to vaccine access efforts to help connect people without transportation to COVID-19 vaccination sites, particularly those in underserved communities. Customers can donate to the Vaccine Access Fund directly through the Uber app using a new donate feature supported by PayPal Giving Fund.
