Project No One Leaves is an organization committed to mobilizing post-foreclosure homeowners and tenants to resist the banks and government entities attempting to displace them and disrupt their neighborhoods. They fight the evictions in court while carrying on a campaign of direct action. Foreclosures hurt families, neighborhoods and communities; as the figureheads of many of the houses that are being foreclosed, women are directly and disproportionately affected by this crisis. PNOL’s work is ongoing, but there are two ways that you can get involved within the next few weeks!
1. PNOL has their annual conference to celebrate progress and compare notes with our colleagues across the country on November 9-11. This conference brings together people employing community organizing and community lawyering to curb the destructive effects of foreclosure across the country. It will include a range of panels, an arts show, a keynote dinner and direct action! Don’t wait, register here!
2. The WLA will be partnering to canvas with PNOL on a Saturday morning (usually about 3 hours). The date is currently set for October 20, 2012. Come be a part of the movement! If you’re interested in joining us on the morning trip, email Stephanie Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org with “PNOL/WLA” in the subject line.
We hope you take this opportunity to get involved with our wider community.
