HPRP executive director Antonia Fasanelli on #Evicted by Matthew Desmond: “His book is the clearest, unadulterated explanation to people who never appreciated the large role eviction plays in low-income communities—it peels back the curtain on the stark realities. We know that housing is a major solution to homelessness. But we will not accomplish it unless we look critically at the tremendous impact that eviction contributes to thousands of people who become homeless in Maryland, and particularly Baltimore, each year.”
HPRP and the Public Justice Center are presenting Harvard sociologist Matthew Desmond September 29 at the 2016 Jane Harrison Speaker Series on the Importance of Housing at the University of Baltimore. The event is sold out.
