Description

This podcast, Part 1 of 2, discusses the VCU Common Book, Evicted, by Matthew Desmond, and the eviction process in general. It covers both the technical definition (the legal process that leads to someone to be physically removed from the place that they rent) as well as the broader “forced moves” that are enacted by landlords without the legal process as well as the creation of the RVA Eviction Lab as a way to research the topic and bring attention to it.
