An Evening with Matthew Desmond

SUPPORT

Matthew Desmond is a professor of sociology at Princeton University, where he founded and leads the Eviction Lab, a team of researchers, students and website architects who believe stable, affordable housing is central to human flourishing and economic mobility.

His latest book, “Poverty, by America,” examines why poverty continues to exist in America and how each of us can become a “poverty abolitionist.” After the conversation portion of the event, Matthew Desmond will be holding a Q&A session with the audience, followed by a book signing.

Primavera Foundation is presenting this special engagement to mark its 40th anniversary, with proceeds helping Primavera continue its vital work.
