60th Anniversary Celebration

On January 8, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson called on Congress to do something never before done: set an aim not only to relieve the symptoms of poverty, but to cure it and, above all, to prevent it. On August 20, 1964, President Johnson signed the Economic Opportunity Act (EOA) which gave birth to Community Action across America.

For 60 years, the nation’s Community Action Network has inspired a spirit of hope, helped millions of people each year change their lives, and improved communities all across America.

We hope you will join us at special events throughout 2024 to help us celebrate this important milestone. This page will update as new events are planned. We also encourage you to share your story with us to celebrate the impacts of Community Action in the Concho Valley!
