Guest Speaker

Matthew Desmond

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, 108,000 individuals and families in Nebraska are at risk of being evicted from their homes by the end of September. Our virtual speaker, Matthew Desmond, bestselling author
of “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City” and leading national voice on evictions and their impact on poverty, will connect today’s surging eviction crisis facing low-wage essential workers and others “on the margins” and the need for increased free legal assistance, including from Legal Aid.
