Student Discussion on Poverty, Housing, and Housing Justice

Wednesday, February 21, 2018
6:00 PM – 7:30 PM


Free – RSVP

The UCSB Blum Center for Global Poverty Alleviation and Sustainable Development is pleased to host its 3rd Pop-Up Book Discussion on poverty, housing, and housing justice. This student-led discussion will draw on the work of Princeton sociologist Matthew Desmond’s Pulitzer Prize winning book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. We will meet Wednesday, February 21 at 6pm in Girvetz Hall Rm 2320.

Participants in the pop-up discussion will be invited to meet the author for a private gathering on February 22 at 4pm to ask questions about the book and discuss their own research. Join us to discuss these timely issues over pizza, and hone your research skills!

To attend either the pop-up discussion or private meeting, please RSVP by February 20th by contacting Caitlin Rathe at for more details about the events, including the reading materials.

We hope you will join us!
