Special Presentation by Matthew Desmond on his Book Evicted in Washington DC, April 28

Matthew DesmondNLIHC is hosting a special presentation by Matthew Desmond on his New York Times best-selling book: Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City on April 28, from 9:30 to 11:30am ET at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, DC. The event is cosponsored by the Coalition on Human Needs and the National Housing Conference.

The Washington Post describes Evicted as “an extraordinary feat of reporting and ethnography. Desmond has made it impossible to ever again consider poverty in America without tackling the central role of housing.”

Dr. Desmond is the John L. Loeb associate professor of the Social Sciences and co-director of the Justice and Poverty Project at Harvard University.  He is a 2015 MacArthur Fellow.
