Poverty Awareness: Luck of the Draw

by Marcus Jackman

March 12, 2012

They say you can’t know a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.  As part of Poverty Awareness Week in Delaware County, local media figures are being asked to do just that by participating in a poverty simulation called “Luck of the Draw.”  IPR General Manager Marcus Jackman took his chances with Molly Flodder of Teamwork for Quality Living and Linda Gregory from the Muncie Action Plan.

Marcus will post about his visit to a local agency on IPR’s news blog.  Flodder says Delaware County Poverty Awareness is also on Facebook, where organizers want the community to get involved.

You can hear more stories on the issues of poverty all this week on IPR.
