LOS ANGELES, CA- Students of East Los Angeles College will come together on April 25, 2013 to speak out against foreclosures and share how it affects them. Some members of the faculty will also share what they have witnessed during the foreclosure crisis.
Foreclosures have clearly affected students and their future. When foreclosure occurs, families are broken and with that the dreams of their children. Students from ELAC are now standing up and speaking against what they call a fight for their future.
When East Los Angeles College students found out about the wrongful foreclosure the Lucero family was facing in their own East Los Angeles neighborhood, they decided to take matters into their own hands and began to organize for a mobilization of their campus to defend the home of Margarita Lucero. Residing on 4748 Hammel St. for the past fifteen-years, Occupy Fights Foreclosures activists have been defending the Lucero home from wrongful foreclosure/eviction by Deutsche Bank of Germany. The occupation of The Lucero home by the Occupy activists is considered the one of the longest occupations in Los Angeles history since the foreclosure crisis started in 2007.
“We are now organizing students to fight for their future,” said Carlos Marroquin, homeowner advocate with Occupy Fights Foreclosures. “Our children have been deeply hurt and their future is in jeopardy by the wrongful actions of the banks.”
