Before the pandemic, Indianapolis was gaining momentum around addressing its eviction crisis. The state legislature wasn't yet moving, but public opinion was. We need to get back to those core Landlord-Tenant issues that hurt families before COVID-19, and now are exacerbating this current crisis.
Past awareness events looked at why Indianapolis had the second most evictions in the nation in previous years, according to The Eviction Lab at Princeton University (www.evictionlab.org).
This time, we look at where we are, what initiatives have been undertaken, and what still can be. This event is designed especially for volunteers of the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) shelter program at Family Promise, but the public is welcome to attend.
• Proof of vaccination or proof of negative PCR test (within 72 hours) is required at the door;
