The City of Huntington Prevention Task Force will hold a community dialogue on poverty on Oct. 30, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Huntington Branch of the Huntington City-Township Public Library.

Community members will discuss the reality of living in financial hardship. A panel of four speakers will answer questions on the evening’s topic and audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions. The session is free and open to the public.

As a follow-up, a poverty simulation will be held on Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. at the iAB Heritage Hall at the Huntington County Fairgrounds. The poverty simulation is free and open to the public, but those planning to attend are asked to make reservations by calling the Victory Noll Center at 200-1740.

The dialogue on poverty is part of the Community Dialogues on Diversity series designed to address topics affecting the community, with a goal of considering different opinions so that community members can understand each other more fully. The dialogues put into action the mission statement of the Huntington Common Council, establishing Huntington as “a community of civility and inclusion, where diversity is honored and differences are respected.”
