DenUM Presents, “The Game of Life”

Tonight at Groundwork Coffee House, DenUM’s Urban Education staff will lead us through a poverty simulation called, “The Game of Life”…

The Game of Life is a fun and interactive experience that gives participants the opportunity to adopt the identity of a real family for one month. Each family is living in poverty and on the brink of homelessness. Participants need to make some tough, yet realistic and creative decisions in order to survive. Do we buy diapers or food? What happens if we can’t pay the rent? Where do our children go when we’re at work? These are some of the many questions participants must answer as they take on life’s unique challenges each day. Can you survive the game of life?

Join us at 8:00 pm for espresso, tea, or hot cocoa. The Game will begin around 8:20! Let Liza know if you have any questions. Invite your friends and suitemates – see you tonight!

Groundwork is located at 2122 South Lafayette Street,

just a couple blocks west of campus.

You can find us in the Fireside Room of the Evanston Center for Spiritual Wholeness and Healing.
