Community Action was established nationally in 1965 as part of the Economic Opportunity Act and War on Poverty. Northeast Kingdom Community Action (NEKCA) is in alignment with the National Community Action Partnership. We share the belief that addressing the fundamental issues of economic and social inequalities includes identifying and creating ways to build the core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion into our policies and practices. We are committed to serving the underserved, all socio-economic statuses, people with all abilities and gender-identities, all sexual orientations, all languages, and religions.
Additionally, NEKCA considers racism a public health emergency. As an anti-racist organization, NEKCA aims to better the social determinants of health for BIPOC*, while promoting inclusiveness as a fundamental operating principle for building a more just and equitable society.
