South County Task Force meeting: Evictions in the Corridor

Nov 1, 2019


The Eviction Lab in Richmond has mapped our census tracks for race and the percentage of evictions. You can see that the rate of evictions is high in the Richmond Highway Community.

Speakers: Dipti Pidikiti-Smith, Deputy Director of Advocacy, Legal Services of Northern Virginia, who defends evicted tenants in Fairfax Court, and David Levine, Good Shepherd Housing, who helps evicted tenants get into new housing and who has had to evict a few tenants himself.
