Just Neighbors: An Interactive Poverty Awareness Program

Just Neighbnors Interacive Awareness ProgramShatter the myths about poverty,  inspire service and empower advocacy!
America's increasing inequality leaves more and more families and individuals living in poverty. Low wage workers do not choose poverty.
Poverty forces families to choose...
...Buy shoes or food?
...Pay the rent or purchase medicine?
...See the doctor or fix the car?
The simulations, role plays, stories and videos in Just Neighbors will inspire your audience to want to help their neighbors help themselves.
Empower advocacy to change those policies that cause poverty.
