Foreclosure Free Block Party!
Friday, February 17th 4pm-8pm @ Bobby Hull’s House (3712 Columbus Ave S) RSVP on Facebook!
On the anniversary of the Minnesota Moratorium of 1934, passed during the last great depression, we’ll be throwing a massive block party to celebrate the defense of the home of Bobby Hull. He’s a former Marine and Vietnam era vet who’s been in his home since 1968 and is facing foreclosure. Feb 17th is the last day of his Redemption Period after which he could face eviction. On this day we’ll pitch a tent and a stage, invite friends, neighbors and supportive community members to Bobby’s home and block.
We’ll treat the event like a celebration-Either be celebrating a good faith negotiation by the Bank (US Bank or Bank of America) or we’ll be celebrating the fact they we’re not leaving anyway. Come stand in solidarity with Bobby and help to send a strong message to the big Banks: We will NOT be moved from our homes without a good faith negotiation and fair resolution to the foreclosure crisis.
Come and join hundreds of community members in solidarity. Enjoy some amazing artists, great food, and the warmth and protection that only comes when neighbors stand together in unity. We’ll be live streaming the event to our friends around the country as we proclaim; Who’s House? Bobby’s House!
