INDIAN TRAIL – Could you survive one month living in poverty?
South Piedmont Community College and Common Heart’s Advocates for Change program presents a Community Action Poverty Simulation from 9 to 11:30 a.m. March 8 at SPCC, 4209 Old Charlotte Hwy., Monroe.
The Missouri Community Action Network developed the simulation to break down stereotypes by allowing participants to step into the real-life situations of others.
Participants will spend a simulated month in poverty. The interactive event allows individuals to walk a month in the shoes of someone who is facing poverty and realize how complex and interconnected the issues of poverty really are.
Families currently living in poverty or have experienced poverty are also encouraged to attend and share their experiences.
Students are welcome to the free event.
