In this panel discussion, we will hear from professionals from a variety of backgrounds (legal, governmental, and journalism), who are all using data to better understand and address the growing instances of both eviction and “equity theft” in the Atlanta area. “Equity theft” is a type of real estate fraud that occurs when someone tries to steal the equity a homeowner has built up in their home. Join us, as we get a glimpse of the data difficulties and data solutions related to housing inequity in our community.
