Justice Forum 2023

We are pleased to announce that Matthew Desmond is our 2023 Justice Forum speaker. Desmond last joined Pisgah Legal in front of a sell-out crowd at our 2017 Forum. Desmond, a MacArthur “Genius” and Princeton sociologist, was launched onto the national stage as an expert on contemporary American poverty of his Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller, Evicted. Desmond’s latest book, Poverty, by America, investigates why the United States, the richest country on earth, has more poverty than any other advanced democracy.
