Richmond has the second highest eviction rate in the country, according to the headline-grabbing numbers from the Princeton University's Eviction Lab. And Virginia has five of the top ten highest evicting cities in the country.
Different understandings of what "counts" as eviction lead to different conclusions about the scale of the problem and interventions to address it. Selecting a measure of eviction is not a politically-neutral decision, and so clarifying the underlying goal or purpose of why we are asking about evictions is important.
Join Howell and Teresa for a discussion on why they argue that evictions are simultaneously a result, cause, and indicator of urban inequality.
