The History of the Community Action Movement

During the month of May, Community Action Agencies across the country celebrate the impact of Community Action. Sargent Shriver served as a pioneer in the Community Action Movement, being a catalyst against America's "War On Poverty." Thanks to Shriver's legacy, millions across the country continue to be impacted by the work of Community Action. (For more, click on the video link here.)
