Pictures of Reno residents who have been displaced recently or are going to be displaced, whether from homeless encampments deemed illegal, or from a neighborhood, house, building, motel, apartment deemed to be blight, or giving way to something new. Many of these displaced have some income, but can't afford rising rents in downtown Reno.
