Walk a mile in the shoes of a Volunteer Legal Services Project client. You'll be surprised at what you'll learn about the struggles our clients face - and the choices you'd make if you, too, were living in poverty. Here's how to take your "walk":
1. Before October 25, go to and play the poverty simulator game. See if you can survive a month on $1,000. It only takes 15 minutes to play this fast-paced and engaging game.
2. Record your thoughts on the experience.
3. On October 25 from noon to 1:00 p.m., attend an interactive panel discussion hosted by Harter Secrest & Emery, 1600 Bausch & Lomb Place. All attorneys who have played the poverty simulator game are welcome to attend. Lunch will be provided.
