Poverty Simulation

When: November 12th at 3-6pm

Where: Young Ballroom

What: Poverty is a social issue that affects more than 15% of the American population. That means that 46.5 million United States citizens live in poverty. While often times this issue does not seem visible to all, sometimes all it takes is actually looking. By experience the Poverty Simulation, you will be able to put yourself in the shoes of someone who is living under the poverty line in the United States. You will be given money, tasks, and the main objective of keeping yourself (and your family) fed and sheltered.
