FAIRFIELD — A coalition of community, education and business leaders will host a Feb. 28 informational meeting to help prepare for this spring’s “Bridging Poverty” conference.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Fairfield Civic Center, 1150 Kentucky St. Organizers are inviting people who would like to know more about how to fight poverty in the community to attend.

“We want to get the word out about the upcoming conference and our need for community volunteers to make it work,” said Laura Escobar of United Way of the Bay Area.

The “Bridging Poverty” conference is scheduled May 11. It will feature sessions on the root causes of poverty and ways to support local families in their education and skill-building goals. It is designed to bring community residents together, both those living in poverty and those who need help navigating community resources, a county press release said.

Keynote speaker for the May 11 conference will be Donna Beegle, who left generations of poverty herself and now teaches about poverty across the United States.

Event sponsors are the United Way of the Bay Area, the Children’s Network of Solano County, Community Action Partnership of Solano, First 5 Solano, Janssen Vacaville, Kaiser Permanente and Solano Community College.

    Big government anti-poverty programs did nothing to lower poverty rates. The best Rx for poverty is a booming economy with inflation tamed. To achieve that end, the finances of government must be brought under control and wasteful spending must be cut. After that, taxes on business and individuals must be lowered. You won't see that happen though---Americans aren't willing to cast off their government slave shackles and leave the Democrats poverty plantations. They stupidly voted for more of the failed same.
