People Helping People: Celebrating 50 Years of Community Action
April 3 - May 24, 2015 ~ Cayuga Museum of History & Art
People Helping People: Celebrating 50 Years of Community Action tells the story of Community Action in Cayuga and Seneca Counties over the last half century. This exhibit presents the national philosophy and circumstances leading up to the War on Poverty and the birth of Community Action, and showcases the evolution of Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency in response to evolving needs and priorities. Local and national themes of hunger, housing, education, employment and training, health, domestic violence and community organizing are examined. People Helping People explores the Agency’s influence in creating the present day landscape of organizations working together to help those in need. The Exhibit includes panels (displayed below), photographs, posters, political cartoons, video, books, magazines and numerous objects on display. We are grateful for the generous support of Mack Studios, Welch Allyn and the Cayuga Museum for making this exhibit possible.
