BOS (V) - Racial Wealth Gap Learning Simulation (6 pm ET)


Want to know Why the Most Affluent Country in the World
has an ever Widening Racial Wealth, Income and Hunger Gap?

RACIAL WEALTH GAP LEARNING SIMULATION
Wednesday, April 27
6-8:00 PM Eastern


Participate in this powerful learning experience that will help you understand the connection between racial equity, hunger, poverty and wealth disparities.
This simulation is an interactive tool and source of information for those who want a deeper understanding of how federal policies have created and sustained gaps in wealth, income and hunger between White and Black Americans. 
This workshop is very highly recommended by TTN member!


Through the Simulation, you will experience the reality of systemic racial discrimination that communities of color confront.  Through discussion and breakouts, you will appreciate how each of the 13 policies featured in the Simulation function as they were intended.
Participants learn how federal policies created structural inequalities  (property ownership, education..) and how these policies increase hunger and poverty in communities of color.  You will learn how achieving racial equity is essential to ending that hunger and poverty.
We believe that in becoming more aware of structural inequities, participants will be better prepared to engage in conversations about the causes of racial wealth gap and support those policies that undo and/or reduce disparities.
