This year, the 50th anniversary of the signing of the 1964 Economic Opportunity Act, represents an opportunity to reflect on what we have accomplished, the vibrant and innovative programs communities run to fight poverty, and the significant efforts, leadership, and impact of Community Action in Minnesota.
