Nelson 'Carty' Ford Memorial Gallery Dedicated to #SocialActionArt

For them and their work, we offer our brave, safe creative space in Nelson's honor.

Nelson 'Carty' Ford Memorial Gallery, to be dedicated on April 30th, is an…

Reflection on the Birth of a Nation

It is not in the cloud anywhere so the poem is elusive at the moment. It was a bit of a study of Thomas Paine and my questioning of 'What America Means to Me"? The answer I recall as "It is both sides of the coin - that I come to make - that makes America Great. "

Now I am not sure how I would define both sides. Instead, I share an image and the phrase currently on my heart.…

Digital Media Curating as a Big Blue Bird

Some rules are meant to be broken to protect your personal space.  In this regard I have learned from teachers who assume Avatar identities to communicate with friend in social media.  

I have done the opposite.  At this time tweets from @FreemanWPAATV are mine and I do 99% of the Outreach communication from the organization I manage under this pseudonym. I also wear the costume at community events to increase our awareness with the next generation.…

Pain into Purpose: Community Violence Intervention Workers Tell It Like It Is

For the second year in a row, the Department of Justice, in partnership with LISC, brought together hundreds of community violence intervention practitioners from across the country to share their experiences and insights on the front lines of gun violence and trauma. Their stories and wisdom are reshaping narratives about victimhood and perpetrators, and helping implement solutions to create safer, healthier communities.

“Wounded Healers”: CVI Worker Wellness Takes Center Stage

LISC, with support from the Department of Justice, has been investing intensively in the work and wellbeing of frontline community violence intervention (CVI) workers. A new report on CVI practitioner trauma and strategies for their wellbeing, and a panel at a recent CVI conference, hammer home the urgency of informed, well-resourced support for these critical community servants.

LISC Receives $2M Grant from The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation to Renovate Sports Spaces for Youth in Under-Resourced Communities

With a new $2 million grant from The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation, LISC opens a second application round for Game On-Community Places to Play, an initiative that funds the renovation of indoor and outdoor athletic spaces for young athletes, particularly in under-resourced communities. The deadline to apply for a grant is September 5, 2024.
