A Racial Wealth Gap Simulation

Quaker Earthcare Witness co-clerk Beverly Ward is hosting a Racial Wealth Gap simulation. The simulation is an interactive tool that helps people understand the connections among racial equity, hunger, poverty, and wealth.

In the simulation, participants learn how federal policies created structural inequalities—property ownership and education are just two among many areas affected—and how these policies increase hunger and poverty in communities of color.

The simulation guides participants to an understanding of why racial equity is so important to ending hunger and poverty in the United States. The hope is that participants, in becoming more aware of structural inequality, can support policies that undo and/or reduce disparities.

All are welcome - we especially encourage Steering Committee members to attend as part of our ongoing efforts to become an anti-racist community.
