9:30AM – 12:45PM:  Poverty Simulation | St. Paul’s Chapel
To continue Martin Luther King Jr.'s mission for social and economic justice, participants are invited to experience prepared scenarios based on US Census data to “simulate” a day in the life of someone living in poverty. The task of each family is to provide for food, shelter and other basic necessities in four 15-minute "weeks." Families will interact with community resources such as schools, banks, non-profits, and employment offices for this event. This program seeks to challenge misconceptions surrounding poverty and build community together.

RSVP is requested but not required; register here. For more information, email

12:45PM: Community Meal at St. Paul’s Chapel – all are welcome.
