In Minneapolis alone, more than 3,000 evictions are filed each year — with devastating and long-lasting impacts on displaced families.
In his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, Dr. Matthew Desmond captured the human toll of this housing crisis, telling the story of eight families swept up in the nation’s eviction epidemic and laying out fresh ideas for solving this devastating problem.
On October 21, Desmond will visit Minneapolis to share insight from his deep research around evictions, poverty and homelessness and join local advocates and leaders to highlight efforts and solutions to provide decent, stable housing for all in the Twin Cities.
