What is the Racial Wealth Gap Learning Simulation?
THE SIMULATION IS an interactive tool that helps people understand the connections among racial equity, hunger, poverty, and wealth. It is a good first step for people unaware of structural inequality, a support tool for those who want a deeper understanding of structural inequality, and a source of information for experts who want to know the quantifiable economic impact of each policy that has widened today’s racial hunger, income, and wealth divides.
Christian Brooks, Domestic Policy Coordinator for the PC(USA) Office of Public Witness, is a trained facilitator of the simulation and has offered to facilitate the exercise for us. She was a guest preacher in July and also led one of our mission engagement sessions in June.
