Participants and Volunteers Invited to MCLP-Sponsored Poverty Simulation

Poverty is a topic avoided by many, particularly those without firsthand knowledge of its struggles and stressors. However, poverty in the U.S.—and in Central Illinois—is real and devastating to those who live it day by day. Recognizing the conditions and systemic causes of poverty, bringing awareness to the issue, and doing one’s part to reverse its negative impact is the work of socially and culturally responsible citizens.
