LISC Flint is working with CDCs and other closely aligned neighborhood intermediaries to identify and evaluate different approaches to organizing their work in community development. The overall goal of this effort provides participants with both the tools and the insights into how to make critical choices regarding how, when and why an organization would want to work collaboratively with others to design, manage or implement a comprehensive community development strategy.
In times of crisis, it is more important than ever that we stay well informed and connected, and support each other. We are working with policymakers, partners and funders to determine the best ways to provide that support. We will continually update you as those efforts move forward and opportunities become available.
We need to acknowledge that Black lives matter. LISC Flint stands in solidarity with the Flint community to fight systemic racism and create a more equitable and just society. We understand that community development moves at the speed of trust and we must be intentional in how we move forward. This begins first with an intentional look at ourselves. We are examining everything we do in the lens of racial equity. We know that we are part of a historically inequitable system and must be intentional in addressing it.
To tackle the deadly and enduring public health crisis of anti-Black racism, nonprofits must shift and sharpen their approach to upending the systems that perpetuate it, explains Adiyah Ali, LISC development officer and a member of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. Unless we make those changes now, we cannot sustain our impact.
