CURL is partnering with photographer Richard Wasserman to create Community Uprooted: Eminent Domain in the U.S., an anthology of photographs and interviews that grapples with the impact of eminent domain – past and present -- on the lives of Americans across the country -- in cities, suburbs, and in rural and farming communities. The project combines a collection of stirring and evocative photographs with the words and experiences of the people most impacted by cases of eminent domain.
On March 15 Loyola's Center for Public Interest Law, Civitas ChildLaw Center, and the Center for Urban Research and Learning hosted "Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City." The talk featured Matthew Desmond, PhD and John L. Loeb, associate professor of the social sciences at Harvard.
