Members of the public are invited to participate in a Poverty Simulation sponsored by the Multicultural Leadership Program (MCLP) on Thursday, October 22 from 4:30-8:00 pm at the Lawrence Irvin Neighborhood Center – 1615 W. Illinois St., Bloomington.
This powerful and unique role-playing experience enables participants age 16 and older to gain insight into the real-world obstacles of families who live in poverty and are struggling to meet their basic needs. Simulation attendees will include MCLP participants, their guests and community members from across Central Illinois.
Advance registration is required for this event and space is limited. To participate, register online by October 20 at http://bit.ly/MCLP2015. There is no charge to attend, but participants are encouraged to bring a canned food donation. The members of the MCLP Class of 2016 do not need to register online. They should contact their program facilitators. Family members, guests and community members should use the above link to register for the event.
