New Paper by PhD Candidate Fowle on Racialized Homelessness

In a newly published paper in Housing Policy Debate, Evans PhD Candidate Matt Fowle explores the roots of racialized homelessness.

He concludes that homelessness is embedded in institutions and social systems that maintain racial hierarchy, and that structural policies that address inequality are more likely than current approaches to reduce racial disparities in homelessness.
