A different kind of APP

One of the things I enjoy about serving on the Assembly is the direct interface between those of us who make decisions and those whom those decisions impact.  Local governance truly is where the rubber meets the road, and we witness the effect of our actions every day.  Given that, I was intrigued by the following opportunity:

What does it feel like to be poor in Anchorage?  Many of us have no idea.  Are our policies and services as good as they can be?  Contribute to the conversation by attending the Anchorage Poverty Project, April 9, from 9 am – 1 pm at Crosspoint Church. You will play an assigned role and be participating in a simulation of “life for one month”!

Visit our Facebook page (search Anchorage Poverty Project) for yet more information! Let us know you’d like to reserve a spot by replying to email address:

Please feel free to forward this information on the others who may be interested.  We are actively soliciting participants!

The Project is being sponsored by the Ascend! students at Frontier Charter School.

9:00 a.m. is registration during which the coffee bar will be open.  The simulation will be followed by a free lunch and debriefing.  We will conclude by 1 pm.

Thank you for considering attending this important event,

The Ascend! class

As many readers know, I volunteer my time with the United Way to raise money benefiting the Anchorage non-profits that serve many of our neighbors in need.  Because of this I’m keenly aware of the level of need in our community and encourage you to consider participating in this project.
