  • (1888PressRelease) March 01, 2019 - ATLANTA, GA Ė The Dignity Museum makes history as the first-ever traveling museum addressing the systemic challenges and bias of poverty in America. The interactive museum highlights the unjust causes of socio-economic disparities, underemployment and food insecurities that impacts over 1 million families throughout the country. The innovative exhibit creates an up close and real view of the conditions in which people live in a way to create empathy and action among those who do not understand the reality of poverty. The Dignity Museum will host its grand opening launch event Saturday, March 23rd and remain open to public with free admission until Monday, March 25th. Tickets are available at lovebeyondwalls.org.

    Curated by homelessness advocacy organization Love Beyond Walls, the Dignity Museum allows visitors to explore a deeper meaning of poverty, experience homelessness simulator stations and immerse themselves in the stories of those who are forgotten.

    ďThis museum was created to give a platform to the voiceless and stories of those who were born into poverty, those who became homeless as adults, families holding cardboard signs with their children at the stoplight, and their collective fight to beat their circumstances,Ē says Terence Lester, founder of Love Beyond Walls.

    The Dignity Museum is a social learning experience housed inside a recycled shipping container. The unconventional exhibit offers a fully guided tour featuring interactive technology and content that captures the rawness of their struggle in a way that gives them a voice and honors their journey as humans. Currently on location at the Love Beyond Walls headquarters in Atlanta, the museum will begin travel across the country in 2020.
