Matthew Desmond’s book “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City” asserts that evictions are both a result and cause of poverty. Join us as Jane Downing and Michael Yonas, Senior Program Officers at The Pittsburgh Foundation and Rachel Rue, Analyst, Allegheny County Department of Human Services, will present an overview of the process to date and share what they’ve learned, ideas for systems interventions and some next steps.
During this GWP session, we will learn more about CLTs and how they are working to ensure affordable housing in our region as we meet with the developers of the first CLT in the City of Pittsburgh, the Lawrenceville Corporation.
