Commemorate MLK and Canvass to resist foreclosure and eviction- 1/15, 10am

62 In 1966, Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. moved to Chicago's West Side to help fight for an end to slums and racial discrimination in housing. Forty-six years later, Chicago has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country, devastating Black and Latino communities most severely. Banks and their wealthy stockholders ruined our economy, and after we bailed them out with our tax dollars those same banks want to take our homes and evict us.

Join Communities United against Foreclosure and Eviction and the Albany Park Autonomous Center for support and collective action.

On Sunday, January 15th meet at the Albany Park Autonomous Center (3460 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, IL 60625) at 10am. There will be a one-hour canvassing training, followed by three hours of knocking on the doors of homes in foreclosure to invite people to regular foreclosure and eviction reisitance meetings.
