Displaced in America: Housing Loss in Indianapolis
Indianapolis is one of the largest cities in America, with a rich African American history. Like so many Midwestern centers, it balances innovation with a production economy and seeks to find balance with the smaller towns and rural communities with which it trades people, services, and culture. Also, like so many locations in the Great Migration region, Indianapolis struggles with rapid economic progress against the backdrop of segregation and systemic racism. An emblem and a casualty of this dynamic? Safe, affordable housing.

With one of the highest eviction rates in the country, property loss isn’t a new story in Indianapolis. But less is understood about the details of loss -- and what happens to people once they are displaced.

To understand how economic and racial dynamics are bound to housing, a fundamental human right, researchers from New America’s Future of Property Rights program teamed up with New America - Indianapolis and the Institute for American Thought at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis to analyze five years of Marion County eviction, mortgage foreclosure, and tax foreclosure data and work with local leaders and residents to better understand property loss and the potential human cost.

Join New America, The Indianapolis Recorder, NUVO Newsweekly and Indianapolis leaders for this discussion of new research, old stories, and a community’s vision for tackling one of the country’s most intractable problems.
