Displaced in America: Part II
|Date:||Thursday, September 17, 2020|
|Time:||12:00 - 1:30 PM|
Professor Steve Virgil will discuss the New America Foundation's upcoming report, "Displaced in America: From Emergency Relief to Transformative Change." Specifically, he will discuss the report's findings in Forsyth County, where eviction rates are more than twice the national average and where residents experience the third worst level of economic mobility in the nation. The report reveals a clear correlation between race and increased housing loss risk.
The Wake Forest Law Environmental Law and Policy Clinic partnered with the New America Foundation, Professor Sherri Lawson-Clark in Wake Forest University's Anthropology Department, and the Center for the Study of Economic Mobility at Winston-Salem State University. Together these organizations are investigating the causes and effects of housing loss in Forsyth County.
