Numbers underscore the troubling prevalence of eviction in the Kansas City area. Nearly three of every 100 renters in Jackson County—a rate almost 20 percent higher than the national average—lost their homes in 2016.

The issue revolves, however, around the people whose lives are uprooted, single moms and schoolchildren and others threatened with homelessness. The Library and KCPT-Kansas City PBS look at their stories and begin a search for solutions in the second installment of a series examining eviction in the city.

The event begins with a screening of Evicted, a documentary examining the issue and how it's tackled elsewhere. A panel including Councilman Quinton Lucas then discusses how it can be addressed in KC. Co-presented by the Black Community Fund and KCPT – Kansas City PBS.
