The Hidden Housing Crisis

What if we told you that Indianapolis is the second highest city for evictions, only behind New York City?

You are invited to join us on February 28, 2019 to hear from Matthew Desmond, Pulitzer-prize winning author of the groundbreaking book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. In partnership with Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity, The Hidden Housing Crisis will take place at The Toby at Newfields beginning at 6 p.m.

Please reserve your seat today for a lecture and discussion about the fundamental role housing plays in deepening inequality in America, as Desmond affirms the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible.
