Event Description:
When pressed, many of us can come up with a technical definition of poverty.  But the experience of living in poverty and the day-to-day choices and sacrifices that must be made is difficult to understand.

Join the Junior League of Lansing to learn about what poverty means to our community.  Our day begins with an interactive poverty workshop, where each attendee will have the chance to experience the difficult decisions that someone in poverty faces.

Lunch will be provided from noon to 1 p.m. Following lunch, there will be breakout forums where community partners will answer moderator and attendee questions to start the discussion about what poverty looks like in our area.  To end the day, Terie Dreussi Smith, one of the authors of Bridges Out of Poverty and national poverty advocate will help us bring everything together into a cohesive framework on the best practices to combat poverty.

Additional Information: Parking is free at LCC for our event. Continental breakfast and lunch provided.
