experimented with putting on short plays to build community learning and
provoke discussion on social justice topics. We've also sponsored
workshops playing the "Poverty Game". This interactive Monopoly-like
game developed by a group in Dawson Creek, B.C. helps to build awareness and
sensitivity to the realities of life on welfare. We've recently
updated the help of law students at Osgood Hall Law School.

the Community Advocacy & Legal Centre at its Annual General Meeting in

can befall any of us and plunge us into the depths of poverty and despair.
