Come to Poverty Education Experience Workshop Friday July 23

We still need a few more folks to sign up to help us in the poverty education workshop Friday July 23 at O'Brien Park, 6147 N. Lewis, with OU Graduate Social Work students. Helpers will get free lunch at noon during an hour of easy training for the workshop which then takes place from 1 to 4 pm in the gym. See the flyer attached. Pass it on to those you know who might be interested in the program. RSVP to me.

Helpers, community residents and activists, will take on roles of staff from health clinic, law, social services, school, bank, etc. as the incoming graduate students take on different roles of residents and try to access necessities. Play money is used but it is not a game; it is a way to begin raising understanding.

Thanks, blessings, and more soon,
430-1150, 691-3223, 794-4637
