When President Lyndon Johnson declared the "War on Poverty," it led to the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 and the Community Action Movement. Programs were implemented to provide services to help move low-income Americans toward self-sufficiency. Today, there are more than 1,200 Community Action Agencies across the country that connect millions of children and families to greater opportunities.
Today, Community Action Marin is the county&#39;s official antipoverty agency, with a mandate to eliminate the causes and consequences of poverty in Marin County. The agency is a leader on efforts to create systems change for racial and economic justice alongside its provision of direct services. It has a new strategic plan and bold vision for the future to build power with people, shift the narrative and create new mindsets, advocate to change systems, and provide community-responsive services.
