HOW's hosted its first-ever virtual luncheon to shed light on the current eviction crisis, its local implications, and ways to help. We were so pleased to have a large online audience engage with our expert panel on this pressing issue. The event explored the topic of eviction through personal narratives and a thrilling panel discussion with four experts from diverse fields spanning government and law to banking and property management.
For those who couldn't attend, or those who want to view and share, you can now view a recording of yesterday's luncheon.
We are also pleased to share, with the help of the community, attendees, and sponsors, HOW is 70% towards its event goal of raising $100,000. To those of you who made this possible, thank you! And if you haven't made a gift yet, there is still time to help HOW cross the finish line if you are able.
The eviction crisis is gaining widespread national attention due to the expected surge in the number of evictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the crisis' newfound fame, Chicago has a storied eviction history that continues today with
1 in every 25 households facing eviction each year.
HOW's 2020 Virtual Luncheon, Locked Out: A Closer Look at Our Eviction Crisis, will bring together a panel of diverse thought leaders in conversation around this pressing topic and its intersection with other critical issues around racial, economic, and housing justice.
Join other community members and HOW supporters virtually on October 15th to learn more about the current eviction crisis, its lasting effects, and possible solutions.
