Flint, Michigan: a sign from the future
Monday, Nov. 11 | 6 p.m. | Miller Room
Christopher Wade, history teacher and doctoral candidate

Most people are passingly familiar with Flint as something that happened “to those people.” Flint means more than that. The intersectional issues of water insecurity, systemic attitudes towards neighborhoods of color, and the failure to address changes in our ecosystem mean that Flint isn’t a "thing that happened," it’s an event that’s going to keep happening over and over and over. Join in on the discussion of one of the critical issues of our time.

Hunger 101 is a hunger simulation. It is a unique, enlightening experience that helps individuals begin to understand what life is like with a shortage of money, a shortage of food, and an abundance of stress. It moves people to think about the harsh realities of poverty and hunger and encourages people to make a difference.
