University of Connecticut PIRG hosted a poverty simulation in a Homer Babbidge video theater on Tuesday, Nov. 13. Like a poverty-themed choose-your-own-adventure game, students were asked to make decisions based on different scenarios in order to illustrate the experience of low-income families. The event was part of PIRG’s Hunger and Homelessness Campaign.
