Zero Eviction Day

Time to Reclaim The Housing??

To commemorate Zero Evictions Day as designated by the International and US/Canadian Alliance of Inhabitants ( a grassroots coalition working for the rights to housing) Northeast Ohio Poor Peoples Economic Human Rights Campaign along with the United Clevelanders Against Poverty, Northeast Coalition for the Homeless, the Homeless Congress and others will be holding a protest calling for upon the government and banks to turn over vacant foreclosed home for housing for persons without homes. This comes at a time when there are substantially more foreclosed properties in Cleveland and the United States than there are people who experience homelessness.

It will be happening this Monday at 1791-1793 East 31st Street , Cleveland (between Paine and Superior ). We chose this property in part because it is an example of a vacant property that has been abandoned by the bank that now owns it. We will be meeting at 1:00 pm at the property. The event will be over by 2:00 pm.

We hope that many of you will be able to participate.
