Poverty Seminar Set For This Weekend at WVSU

West Virginia State University will host a program this weekend to increase awareness about poverty and look for solutions. The Simulation of Poverty program is set for Saturday in the Wilson University Union. Participants will role-play the lives of low-income families, simulating a month of poverty compressed into four 15-minute segments. Those participating will be in family scenarios with little money, and they'll have to decide how to use it, and interact with human service agencies, grocers, bill collectors, prospective employers, police and others.

Participation is open to the public by calling 304-766-3088.
