An eviction crisis -- fueled by a history of racially discriminatory housing policies, a lack of affordable housing, chronic underfunding of government subsidized housing, and a lack of adequate tenant protections -- is growing in magnitude as the COVID pandemic continues. What does this crisis look like in Texas? This event will examine the eviction crisis in America with a focus on its disproportionate impact on black and brown communities and the way the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this already existing crisis. The event will begin with a quick presentation demonstrating the urgency of the crisis and then shift to a panel discussion featuring housing lawyers, community organizers, and a local judge who see this crisis in action on a daily basis and are working to stem its profoundly negative impacts.

Specific audiences:
  • Texas Law students
  • Texas Law alumni
  • Faculty
  • Staff
  • General public
Sponsored by:
  • American Constitution Society
