Howard Street Pasadena, CA, 91103 When: Thursday, November 1, 2012 1:00 - 5:30 p.m. - protest and help move possessions after eviction from rental home 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. - Candelight Vigil - Support Deidra - Protest Racial Overtones of the Foreclosure Crisis
Please come and stand in solidarity with Deirdra Duncan, a foster care mother of five developmentally disabled children (all siblings) who has been evicted from her home and must remove her belongings today from the house she has been renting at 35 W. Howard Street in Pasadena. The house was foreclosed and purchased by an investor who has used serious intimidation tactics and deeply shameful rasist language against D.D., including threats to the children.
We need people to stand in solidarity with D.D. Duncan, a Pasadena native who has been a foster care mother of 32 years. She and her five foster children, all siblings at high-risk, were evicted from their rental home in August, 2012. Last week we spoke with the investor who agreed to delay a "trash out" of the home, but it appears he has changed his mind. He now says he will come as early as today. Given how hard it is for large families to find affordable housing in Pasadena, we view this as an important priority.
Please find below some background on D.D.'s case Thanks for anything you can do to help!
on behalf of: Deirdra Duncan 35 & 45 West Howard, Pasadena, CA. (MAP at the bottom) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 626.676.0975
A FEW WORDS ABOUT DEIRDRE DUNCAN
Deirdra Duncan has been a foster care mother for 32 years. In 2007, she assumed long-term foster care of five high-risk children - all siblings - ranging in age from 4 to 17. She became the children’s legal guardian in 2010, an agreement that required her to provide them with a long-term, stable environment, and, in essence, to accept the children as her own.
Occupy Fights Foreclosures, affiliated with OccupyLA, stands up against the nationwide foreclosure crisis. We support, educate and empower homeowners at risk to save their homes from fraudulent foreclosure.
