According to the Princeton Eviction Lab, five of the nation's top ten cities for eviction are in Virginia: Richmond, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, and Chesapeake; Virginia Beach is number 15 on the list. As the Sharpe Associate Professor of Civic Renewal and Entrepreneurship, Professor Hanley is working with community partners and W&M students on research to address the Virginia eviction crisis.
