2016 Poverty Summit: The Struggle Continues

California Community Action Partnership Association

2016 Poverty Summit

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Stanford, CA

In cooperation with the Stanford Center on Poverty & Inequality


More than 50 years ago President Lyndon B. Johnson declared a unilateral War on Poverty.  As a result, Community Action Agencies were birthed as the offspring of the War on Poverty.  Federally designated in law and statute as the poverty fighting agencies in our nation, Community Action Agencies in California have been on the front line empowering individuals and families to life themselves out of poverty with innovative strategies.

Join us for this incredible Summit on March 29th, 2016.
