A stable place to call home is one of the best predictors of success. Yet, each year more than 2.3 million Americans, most of them low-income renters, face eviction. While it used to be rare even in the poorest neighborhoods, forcible removal has become ordinary, with families facing eviction from the most squalid, barely inhabitable apartments. #JustEconomy participants will have an opportunity for a private tour of the Evicted exhibition at the National Building Museum, exploring the causes and impacts of eviction. A collaboration from Matthew Desmond, professor of sociology at Princeton University, a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow and best-selling author, Evicted offers an immersive experience bringing our visitors into the world of low-income renter eviction.
