WBOI Presents: The Eviction Epidemic

Oct 14, 2020

This week, we are once again hearing from our friends from Advancing Voices Of Women or AVOW, for a civil conversation about eviction. According to Eviction Lab, Fort Wayne ranked thirteenth in the nation for evictions and that was before the COVID-19 pandemic. With the economic fallout that has come with the coronavirus, the United States faces an eviction and homelessness crisis. We’ll learn about the laws that govern landlord and tenant actions. AVOW assembled a panel for a conversation outside at Barr Street Market.

 

Panelists include: 

Kelly Lundberg, Director, Office of Housing and Neighborhood Services

 

Andrew Thomas, staff attorney, Indiana Legal Services

 

Jeff Vaughan, real estate professional and local landlord
