Categories: Articles

The Museum is reaching the final months of Evicted before it closes and begins traveling, starting in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where Matthew Desmond followed eight families struggling with chronic eviction, whose stories were the basis for his research and book. The exhibition has since collected nearly 150 cards written by visitors. The collection below focuses on visitors who have worked in jobs and careers surrounding the eviction process, whether that is as a legal aid or as a landlord. We welcome you to read these stories and submit your own.

You can read the first set of cards written by those who have experienced eviction here.
