Sept. 17 - Americorps VISTA Program Celebrates 50 Years Of Fighting Poverty

Sep 17, 2015

This year marks the 50th anniversary of one of the country’s formative volunteer organizations known as VISTA, or Volunteers in Service to America.  For the dozens of VISTA volunteers in New Mexico, regrouping at one of the celebrations held here in Santa Fe on Wednesday, it was a chance to look back on how they’ve helped improve the lives of New Mexicans.  KSFR’s Deborah Martinez reports from the event that was hosted by famous author and former VISTA volunteer George RR Martin.
