Marybeth Shinn, Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair, Department of Human and Organizational Development, is available for commentary on eviction moratoriums and how they work.
An expert on the topic of homelessness and affordable housing, Shinn is also the author of a recently published book, "In the Midst of Plenty: Homelessness and What to Do About It." Shinn can speak to:
- How an eviction moratorium works and consequences for it ending, including accumulated rents being due
- The health hazard that evictions and potential homelessness or congregate housing cause, especially as we continue to endure COVID
- Her view that we know what causes homelessness (lack of affordable housing, rising inequality, etc.) and have the resources to end it, but lack the political will
- Suggested government assistance to end the crisis and how affordable housing is the first step to getting people back on their feet (everything else, such as employment, comes second)
