The Racial Wealth Gap an interactive tool that helps people understand the connections among racial equity, hunger, poverty, and wealth. It is a good first step for people unaware of structural inequality, a support tool for those who want to know the quantifiable economic impact of each policy that has widened today's racial hunger, income, and wealth divides. The simulation was created by the Bread for the World, a national non-profit organization that fights hunger at home and abroad. Bread educates people about hunger and advocates for hunger policy through a bipartisan approach.

Instructions for the required advocacy activity are included in the recording, but a copy of the instructions can be found below. An screenshot of the activity needs to be uploaded to GivePulse to receive credit.
