About Sam

Lutzker uses ethnographic and interview methods to examine the effects of homelessness policy in California. His research follows participants through a variety of housing forms, from living in vehicles to hotel rooms like those contracted through state programs such as Project Room Key. Lutzker has organized with Street Watch LA, helping to establish a mutual aid community across several unhoused encampments, and is currently engaged in a project on the Echo Park Lake displacement at the Luskin Institute for Inequality and Democracy.
