By ONME Newswire

Producer host Julia Dudley Najieb shares her grim story as she delves into the shadows of California's eviction crisis head-on. Watch full introduction which includes episode 1 of the Central Valley Eviction Crisis docuseries.

Central Valley Eviction Crisis - Episode 1:

In this episode, expert Peter Hepburn goes over the Eviction Lab created at Princeton University, explaining the details of how they can keep track of evictions in real time as they are happening nationwide--something the federal government does not have.

This episode also reveals the disparities of housing, jobs, and living wages in the Central Valley presented by UC Merced Professor Dr. Edward Orozco Flores.

Professor Edward Orozco Flores & Ana Padilla, University of California Merced Community

and Labor Center, provide research findings on the Central Valley’s affordable housing crisis

and how the pandemic has exacerbated issues linked to lack of affordable housing and tenant protections.

Peter Hepburn is an assistant professor of sociology at Rutgers University-Newark. He is also a postdoctoral researcher in the Eviction Lab at Princeton University. His research examines how changes to three core social institutions — work, criminal justice, and housing — serve to produce and perpetuate inequality. He received his Ph.D. in Sociology & Demography and his M.A. in Demography from the University of California, Berkeley, and his M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of Chicago.
