Making Sense Of Making It In America: Poverty Simulation

a Workshop

Tuesday, 2/26/2019, 6:00pm to 9:00pm.   ARCHIVED EVENT

Location: Ross School of Business Blau Colloquium, 5th Floor, Blau Building

We hear a lot about the social safety net in America -- a patchwork of government programs that in theory help support individuals in our nation in need of temporary assistance and put them on a path toward economic mobility. But how does it actually work? Who does it catch and who does it leave behind? How do low-income families and individuals engage with the system while trying to meet their everyday basic needs?

Join us for a three-hour structured and engaged learning experience designed to gain a better understanding of our current system, reflect on how U.S. policies help or hinder those most in need, and identify opportunities to take action toward a more just and equitable system.

Poverty Solutions is partnering with the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice to host the event.
