The FEC Planning Committee is excited to offer a Poverty Simulation Workshop this year at the conference.  Entitled Pinched, the workshop 

 is a guided experience that exposes participants to some of the challenges faced by those living in poverty. During the simulation, participants will play the role of an individual whose family lives in poverty. “Families” must work together to take care of life’s daily responsibilities, provide basic necessities like food, shelter and care. The simulation is followed by a guided discussion where participants have a chance to reflect on their experience.  To read more about it, go to this informational flyer.  Pre-registration for the workshop is required and will offered on the conference registration form.
