Prayer & Candlelight Vigil to Save Rosemary's Home
People of Faith Join People of Conscious for Justice
Monday, August 10, 8:00 p.m.
3138 Clinton Ave S, Minneapolis

Monday, Aug. 10 at 8pm we will have an emergency candlelight vigil at the
home of Rosemary Williams. We call on members of conscious and the faith
community from around the country to take part in vigils in their local
areas in solidarity with Rosemary William's struggle to keep her home and
against foreclosures and evictions around the country. In the Twin Cities,
we call on people of conscious and the faith community to join us at
Rosemary's home.

We will come together to unite opposition to foreclosures and evictions
that have been ravaging our communities and destroying families. We call
on GMAC to come to the table and use the millions of dollars provided by
the government to help families renegotiate their loans.

On Friday, Aug. 7th, Rosemary Williams and her family endured a snap
eviction from the home Rosemary has been fighting to save for over a year.
Neighbors, supporters and community members have rushed to the house at
3138 Clinton to defend the home.

Tons of supporters supporters have slept on the floors and have held an
overnight watch at the front and back doors. During the days, hundreds of
people have pitched in for rallies, massive moves of Ms.Williams
belongings, and organizing meals and community gatherins. We now shift our
focus to deal with the crossroads in front of us - Rosemary will either be
given justice and allowed to stay in her home or, as people of conscious
and faith, we will be forcibly removed from the home. Rosemary Williams'
family serves as an example of the national foreclosure crisis.

We will be praying for justice and calling on the banks to come to the
table to save Rosemary's home and end foreclosures and evictions around
the country.
