Walk in Our Shoes

The Walk in our Shoes experience is designed to help participants understand what it’s like to live as a Latino in our community. It is a simulation, not a game. The object is to focus and sensitize participants to the realities faced by area Latinos. The experience lasts from 2-2.5 hours (we will serve lunch at 12:30pm and the simulation will be from 1:00-3:00 or 3:30pm). It includes an introduction and briefing, the actual simulation exercise, and a debriefing period in which participants and volunteer staffers share their reactions and experiences. REGISTER NOW The simulation requires a minimum of 26 participants with a maximum of 56 participants. With all three UU congregations participating in this, spots will fill up quickly. For Free Childcare Provided, go to: https://fusmadison.org/childcare/ on or before Oct.
