Learn about The Eviction Lab at Princeton University, which has produced the first nationwide database of evictions, and discover how this powerful tool can help us gain a better understanding about the eviction crisis in America. Eviction Lab research specialists James Hendrickson and Lavar Edmonds present data on national eviction rates as well as for select metropolitan regions and discuss, with Evicted curator Sarah Leavitt, how this data can be used in developing solutions. This talk complements the exhibition Evicted, which will be open prior to the program.

Free. Pre-registration encouraged. Walk-in registration based on availability.

Online registration for Museum programs closes at midnight the day before the scheduled program.

The Museum's award-winning Shop and Firehook Café are open for one hour prior to the start of the program. Shop and Café hours are subject to change.
