Rethink Poverty: The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS)

2018-04-04 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Maurice A. Deane School, South Campus, Hofstra University
Address: 113 Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY 11549

This interactive, immersive program is a profoundly moving experience as it encourages people to think about the harsh realities of poverty and talk about how communities can address the problem. Most importantly, it moves people to make a difference. CAPS bridges the gap from misconception to understanding. It sensitizes community participants to the realities of poverty as it is based on real Community Action clients and their lives. CAPS exists to promote poverty awareness, increase understanding, and inspire local change.

Advance registration is required; participating is limited. Light refreshments will be served.

Co-sponsored by the Maurice A. Deane School of Law and Hofstra University Honors College.
