The Game Of Life: Changing Perspectives on Poverty

7:00PM - 10:00PM  

For The Win Cafe 3216 Yonge St
Toronto, ON M4N 2L2

$ Cost $ 10.00

We invite you to join us on February 29th for an evening of board games and conversation regarding poverty within the Jewish community. Our discussion will surround the important topic of how we as young adults view poverty, and how our greater Jewish community can provide a collaborative effort to minimize the effects of poverty today and in the future.

We are privileged to have two powerful speakers for the evening:

Sandi Pelly: Director, Capacity Building for the Social Services at UJA Federation of Greater Toronto

Fran Chodak: Social worker and coordinator of The STEP (Striving to End Poverty) Project at Jewish Family & Child

For those living in poverty, it can be difficult to remain intellectually stimulated, to be continuously active within social circles and to maintain good mental health. Playing games with friends encourages us to consider how valuable all 3 of these components are within our lives and within our minds.

Let us play the game of life and band together as a community to raise awareness and change perspectives on poverty.

MIT Planning Group: Danielle Rovinski, Ryan Riback, Jeremy Starr, Justin Krieger, Alexandra Lulka, Anna Frankel, Jade Zylberberg, Ashley Kochman.
