Racial Wealth Gap Simulation

Westminster will host an interactive educational event designed to help people understand the connections among racial equity, hunger, poverty and wealth.  The event will be held on Wednesday, May 1, from 6pm—8pm.  The simulation, developed by Bread for the World and facilitated by Rosa Saavedra, demonstrates how federal policies, such as the GI Bill, created structural inequities affecting property ownership and education, and how those policies had a lasting impact on hunger and poverty in communities of color.  For more information, go to http://www.bread.org/library/racial-wealth-gap-learning-simulation

Registration is free and limited to 30 participants. Please register by the April 26 deadline.
