Moratorium NOW! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures and Evictions


Dec. 3 - Pack the court for Mary Eady

Dec. 4 - Candlelight vigil for Marvin and Louise Morris

Dec. 6 - Statewide organizers conference


Statewide Organizers Conference 

Saturday, December 6, 2008, 12 Noon to 4:00 pm, Central United Methodist Church, 23 E. Adams, Detroit (corner of Woodward and Adams at Grand Circus Park).  This event represents a culmination of activities over the last year to win a moratorium on foreclosures and evictions in the state of Michigan.  We will assess the movement and plan for future actions.  The conference is free and open to the public.


The importance of this conference and the need to continue to fight for a two-year moratorium on foreclosures in Michigan as embodied by SB 1306, can be demonstrated by the following foreclosure cases which the Moratorium NOW! Coalition is taking up this week. We will not get fooled by phony pronouncements from the banks and half-hearted measures by Lansing or Washington. The Moratorium NOW! Coalition involves real people who are currently facing foreclosures and evictions.  We continue to fight to stop this rampant injustice!



Wednesday, December 3, 2008, 11:00 a.m. at 36th District Court, Madison and Brush, in downtown Detroit. Mary Eady is a 77-year-old woman on a fixed income about to be thrown out of her home of 47 years by Wells Fargo Bank, who just received a $25 billion bailout of taxpayer money from the government. Support Ms. Eady by packing the courtroom of Judge Izetta Bright (either room 433 or 434), when a hearing on her eviction will be taking place.


PRESS CONFERENCE AT THE SHERIFF'S SALE OF LORENE PARKER'S RESIDENCE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2008, 12:30 PM, Coleman Young Municipal Center, Room 1607, Woodward at Jefferson, Detroit


Lorene Parker fell behind on her mortgage with Bank of America when she had large medical bills stemming from undergoing a double transplant, a heart and liver transplant.  She contacted Bank of America over a period months requesting relief on her mortgage because of her medical hardship.  Their response was to move forward with foreclosure proceedings, scheduling a Sheriff's sale this Thursday.  Come out and support Ms. Parker this Thursday.  Demand the illegal Sheriff's sale be stopped and Bank of America negotiate a loan modification with this woman who has suffered enough.




Thursday, December 4, 2008,6:00 p.m., at 9592 Plainview, Detroit, MI 48228,home of Marvin and Louise Morris

Mr. and Mrs. Morris are being threatened with eviction from their home of many years by Barclays Bank and its servicer, HomEq d/b/a Barclay Capital Real Estate.  Their block already has 10 or 11 foreclosed homes on it.  The Morrises have been victims of constant servicer abuse by HomEq, and even won a court case several years ago.  But now Barclays has obtained a court order for the foreclosure of their home.  Mr. and Mrs. Morris are both seniors in poor health, but Barclays and HomEq are forging ahead to take their home over a few thousand dollars of disputed debt.
