Transforming Perspectives: The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS)
June 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
As a society, we are often presented with many stereotypes and misconceptions about poverty and inequality. How then do we shift our paradigm about poverty away from being seen as a personal failure and toward the understanding of poverty as structural, or a failure of society? One of the key ways Community Action professionals can respond is through the Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS).
The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS) is an interactive immersion experience designed to sensitize community participants to the realities of poverty, and ultimately transform perspectives. Please join the National Community Action Partnership and Missouri Community Action Network on Wednesday, June 26 to learn more about this powerful tool and how you can use it in your own community to make a lasting impact.
