Session: Hunger is a Racial Equity Issue
The workshop will explore why African-American communities are disproportionately impacted by hunger in the U.S. Participants will participate in the virtual Racial Wealth Gap Learning Simulation. The simulation is an activity that helps people understand the connections among hunger, poverty, and wealth by providing a deeper understanding of structural racism. In the simulation, participants learn how federal policies increase hunger and poverty in communities of color. The simulation guides participants to an understanding of why racial equity is important to ending hunger and poverty in the United States.
