Boston event on the foreclosure crisis

Greetings ! Your presence is requested on February 27, 2009, 12pm at the John Adams Courthouse. The foreclosure crisis that struck Massachusetts is being felt in cities and communities across our state.  Massachusetts ranks 14th in the nation with 53,797 foreclosure filings in 2008.   In cities such as Boston, Brockton, Springfield, and Worcester, thousands of our friends and neighbors have had their lives turned upside down often through no fault of their own.
  
While much attention has been given to homeowners, tenants of foreclosed properties are too often on their own and left in the cold.  Tenants forced into such situations are not looking for handouts or free rent; they want to understand their choices and their rights.
 
Join representatives of Massachusetts Legal Services and AmeriCorps advocates on February 27, 2009 to screen a special documentary highlighting the often-unheard stories of victims of the foreclosure crisis.  A question and answer session will follow with a panel of housing advocates specializing in the issues of tenants facing eviction as a result of foreclosure. 
 
Space is limited.  RSVP by February 25, 2009  to thuynh@sccls.org or call 508-880-6704 to reserve your spot.   We look forward to your participation and your input!
