Black History Month is first and foremost a weeks-long celebration of the pioneering black Americans who changed the course of our culture and country. For white parents, particularly those who don't feel comfortable or prepared to talk with their children about race and racism, the month should also be seen as a timely opportunity to start essential, on-going conversations about racist ideas if they haven't…See More

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

Putting Faith in a Local—and Ingenious—Solution for Affordable Housing

LISC’s New York Land Opportunity Program is helping churches and other mission-driven groups scale the steep learning curve that leads to developing affordable housing on their land. Three years in, the effort is making promising inroads into the city’s affordable housing crisis, and inspiring similar initiatives in communities across the country.

The Good Word on How Faith-based Groups Are Turning Land into Homes

An in depth feature on Curbed.com details how mission-based groups, especially churches, are skilling up to turn their under-used land into affordable housing and other facilities their communities desperately need. And LISC initiatives in San Antonio, New York and the Bay Area are leading the charge. “Churches really feel the impact of the displacement issue in their communities,” says LISC Bay Area’s Laurel Engbretson in the article. “There’s a higher level of energy to get involved in this, because they understand the larger market context.”

We Got Next: Playing Hoops and Transforming Lives

This weekend’s NBA All-Star Game is a reminder of the transformational power of basketball, and the many ways that LISC promotes a game that can spark opportunity and help heal communities all across the country.
