Please join us for: The Vermont Low Income Advocacy Council “Edna Fairbanks-Williams” Advocate Dinner - this year marks the 50th Anniversary of this country’s “War on Poverty”. In 1964 President Johnson called upon Congress to pass the “Economic Opportunity Act”, which he signed it into law, stating that “Our American answer to poverty is not to make the poor more secure in their poverty but to reach down and help them lift themselves out of the ruts of poverty and move . . . along the high road of hope and prosperity….”

As we celebrate our progress, there is still much to do. Join us for the VLIAC “Advocate” Dinner as we gather together to recognize the work, and the people who continue to fight poverty, and seek social and economic justice.

All are welcome to attend. As is our custom, we will discuss some of the issues of the day, and candidates for office have been invited to attend.

Food and Drink provided by the UCC folks at Bethany Church.

There is no cost for attending.

Thank you - Hope to see you all
