Elizabeth McGriff Eviction Blockade


HELP US DEFEND ELIZABETH'S RIGHT TO REMAIN IN HER HOME!
 
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 AT 11:30AM

 

Elizabeth McGriff has been notified by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office that she will be evicted from her home on Wednesday, September 2.
 
Please come stand with Elizabeth, her neighbors, Take Back the Land, and other supporters to tell MidFirst Bank NO!
 
Elizabeth has been trying to work with MidFirst. She is able to make payments, and has tried repeatedly to get MidFirst to negotiate a solution, but MidFirst has refused to work with her. Instead, they have resorted to questionable and legally shady tactics to gain ownership of her home in order to  collect FHA backed mortgage insurance. 
 
JOIN US ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 at 11:30 at Elizabeth's house at 618 Cedarwood Terrace. Stay as long as you are able.  The sheriff has stated that they will come sometime after noon. However, it is not certain if and when they will show up that day.  
 
In order to show a unified message, Take Back the Land t-shirts will be available to wear.  If you would like to take one home, they will also be for sale. If you already have one, wear it! We also encourage support signs and flags from other organizations whose missions and policies are aligned with Take Back the Land. 
 
If you are interested in helping out with preparation of the eviction watch after the rally, please call 585 485-3807. Help us bring democratic community control over land and housing. Housing is a Human Right!
