This brief begins to identify the extent to which evictions are negatively impacting Memphis neighborhoods in hopes of galvanizing a larger city-wide conversation around this topic. The brief can be accessed at the icon below.
R2A #2: COVID-19 & Memphis Neighborhoods
The economic and social repercussions of the novel coronavirus are already becoming evident and are likely to have a tangible, longer-term impact for many Memphians. I worked with Innovate Memphis to create a public mapping tool that visualized these socioeconomic impacts combining methodologies from NYU's Furman Center and the Urban Institute.
R2A #3: 2023 State of Memphis Housing Report
Last year, the City of Memphis' Division of Housing Community Development (HCD) partnered with the Rhodes College Research-2-Action Collaborative (an initiative of the college’s Institute for Health Equity & Community Justice) to produce an update to the previous State of Memphis Housing Report from 2020. The goal of this report is to provide a single source of facts, data, and analysis to guide conversations between the key players—bankers, realtors, planners, organizers, advocates, developers, etc.— in the Memphis housing landscape.
