Fenwick & West hosting upcoming poverty simulation.

June 13: Fenwick & West is hosting “A Day in the Life of a Pro Bono Client” (Poverty Simulation)

fenwick-560x264Join us for an eye-opening opportunity to deepen your understanding of the challenges faced by those living in poverty and find out about ways to help. During the exercise, participants role-play the lives of low-income families, from single parents trying to care for their children to seniors trying to maintain their self-sufficiency on Social Security. The task of each family is to provide food, shelter and other basic necessities on a limited budget while interacting with community resources such as the bank, grocery store, school, and legal aid. After the training is over, there will be a debriefing discussion.

“The Poverty Simulation Kit” was created by Missouri Association for Community Action to promote poverty awareness, increase understanding and inspire local change. The “Kit” has been used by over 1,000 organizations worldwide, including schools, nonprofits, and governmental agencies.
