Appalachian Experience Team Meeting
Monday, November 17th at 7 pm in the CCE
Join the Appalachian Experience team for a meeting focused on how hunger and homelessness disproportionately affects people living in Appalachia.
Tuesday, November 18th at 6 pm in the Social Hall
Participants will be put into "families" and will have to survive for four weeks during the simulation. In order to make it, participants will have to get food, find employment, get health services, pay bills, and more while dealing with long lines, public transportation, and law enforcement. This is an eye-opening experience about the tough realities for families living in poverty with a facilitated discussion afterwards by Idress Gooden, community member and expert on facilitation of the framework of poverty. Participants should plan to stay until 8 pm. To learn more, e-mail Kortney Frame at email@example.com.
