Westfield Republican / Mayville Sentinel News

FREDONIA - The Social Action Ministry on Economic Justice from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua will hold a panel presentation on the state of poverty in the community.

Americans are struggling every day to make it above the poverty line. Come and hear the stories of people who are already or are at risk of falling below the line.

This presentation, "Living Below the Line: Poverty in our Neighborhoods," will be held on Thursday, April 11 at the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator, 214 Central Ave., Dunkirk from 7 to 8:45 p.m. Included on the panel will be representatives of Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc., the Department of Social Services and Chautauqua County Rural Ministry. A discussion will follow.

This is the second event in a two-part series on poverty and the working poor in Chautauqua County. The film, "The Line" was shown on Friday, Feb. 22 to inform and inspire participants regarding actions that can be taken to make a difference in the community.

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua is a liberal religious community devoted to promoting individual spiritual development, working toward peace, liberty and justice in immediate and global communities and providing companionship on life's sacred journey. Worship services are held each Sunday at 11 a.m. in the Grange Hall, 58 W. Main St., Fredonia. Call 679-7944, visit www.uucnc.org, or visit www.facebook.com/uucnc for more information.
