Bonnie Acker

I love celebrating the successes of community organizations, including the vital work of the Community Health Center. Quality health care is a fundamental human right and the Center is making this possible for many, many people.

Acker is a lifelong artist and activist who has lived with her family in Burlington for the past 20 years. Her landscapes and illustrations have long been supporting a myriad of local, national and international organizations working towards sustainable farming, affordable housing, safe places for women in crisis, an end to nuclear weapons and other social justice causes. Her work may be seen in Vermont galleries and shows, and in auctions benefiting grassroots organizations. In addition to her life as an artist, Bonnie is immersed in a statewide effort to improve the foods served in Vermont schools. She is the recipient of numerous awards including several in 2005. One was from the Vermont Alliance for Arts Education for her significant contribution to the arts at Edmunds Middle School in Burlington and another was a Governor's Award for Outstanding Community Service for connecting Burlington students to school-food change, gardening and farming.
