Morningside College will host “An Unbalanced World: A Distribution Exercise” on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 11:45 a.m. in Roadman Formal Lounge, 3600 Peters Avenue. The free event is sponsored by Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS), Campus Ministries, Morningside’s Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), and the Morningside Civic Union (MCU). The public is invited to attend.
Participants in the interactive program will be divided into three groups representing high-, middle-, and low-income countries. The groups will conduct actitivties that provide a visual example of the distribution of the world’s food and wealth. Afterwards, attendees will be invited to take part in the Offering of Letters, a letter-writing campaign encouraging members of Congress to pass legislation to address the needs of the hungry and poor. A question and answer period will follow the activities.
“An Unbalanced World: A Distribution Exercise” is designed to stimulate discussion about the role of citizens and nations in bringing about fairness, justice, and a balanced world. It was developed by Bread for the World, a nationwide Christian movement that seeks justice for the world's hungry people by lobbying the nation's decisionmakers.
