The Berkshire Community Action Council is inviting anyone who has trouble paying their bills, or anyone who works to alleviate the effects of poverty in the county, to bring their thoughts and ideas to a Community Conversation on Poverty.

The forum is scheduled to take place from 9 am to 1 pm on Jan. 17th at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Church Street Center. Discussions about available resources and barriers to breaking the chain of poverty are anticipated, along with BCAC strategies to fight poverty over the next three years. U.S. Rep. Richard Neal is expected to offer closing remarks.

Here is your invite from BCAC!
