Out of 100,000 residents, every year 35.3 are murdered, which ranks it as one of America’s most dangerous cities too. 11.

Over the past year, the Poverty Reduction Initiative has recorded the experiences of Michigan residents who participated in Poverty Simulation Workshops across Michigan. This video is a compilation of their feelings, concerns and outcomes after experiencing a simulated "month" in poverty. The Poverty Simulation Workshop is a role-playing experience that offers the opportunity to learn more about the realties of living in conditions of poverty. Participants enter the workshop with a new identify and family profile. Participants experience one month of poverty compressed into the real time of the simulation (generally three hours total). Afterwards in the debriefing, they share insights of extraordinary vividness and intensity. As a result, ordinary people from all walks of life can share a very special kind of awakening. The Poverty Simulation Workshop can open people's eyes to the human cost of poverty. The power of this unique learning resource is that it creates, like no other method, an insight into the state of chronic crisis that consumes so many working poor families.
