March for Mary!
Wednesday, August 31st at 4pm
Gather at 320 Tompkins Avenue
( G Train to Bedford /
Nostrand or C Train to Kingston-Throop )
At 4PM March to 1168 Fulton Street (768 Dean Inc.)
Join us at Mary Lee Ward's house as we continue the campaign to keep her secure in her home. The purported owner, Mr. Shameem Chowdhury (of 768 Dean Inc.), has refused to negotiate and will move ahead with plans to evict Ms. Ward, an 82 year-old Bed-Stuy great-grandmother who has lived in her home for the past 44 years.
Ms. Ward, beloved in her community, is a victim of predatory lending. She was in line to become yet another casualty of the foreclosure crisis except that...
She’s not giving up!
And neither are we!
We seek a just settlement that recognizes Ms. Ward as the rightful owner of her home. We also seek to reconcile the history of deceptive lending practices that have stripped neighborhoods like Bed-Stuy of their community wealth and power.
We are Organizing for Occupation (O4O), an all-volunteer network of concerned NYC residents who believe that the only means of realizing the human right to a home is through direct action.
Join the Campaign!
