Step Up Silicon Valley, Campaign to Cut Poverty extends a special invitation to HTP members to attend the Poverty Simulation and Dialogue on April 22nd at Cisco.

The Step Up Poverty Simulation is sponsored by American Leadership Forum.  John Morgridge from Cisco is participating, as well as Emmett Carson of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Francis Lee, Chairman of Synaptic, and Beverly Johnson of San Mateo County Human Services.

Poverty Simulation is a tool that educates about the day-to-day realities of life with a shortage of money and an abundance of stress. During the simulation, participants role play the lives of low income families trying to maintain their self-sufficiency. Although is uses "play" money, props and fictional scenarios, it is not a game but enables participants to view the real world of poverty.

This is an opportunity for local businesses to participate in an important process as well as to engage with others doing good work in our communities.
