9:30am [9:30am] Liz McGriff received her eviction notice. Here are the Rally plans
Description:
Well, here it is! Liz McGriff received her eviction notice. Here are the Rally plans This eviction notice was delivered to Liz McGriff's door, so it's official. It says that if she does not vacate her home by 10am on Tuesday, 8/8, the Sheriff O'Flynn will feel "compelled to break open the door" and remove her possessions. We are calling for a rally on Tuesday, August 8 at 9:30am at Liz's home. Please join us to support Liz and her right to negotiate to stay in her home. The police tend to stay away from our rally's, so it will likely be calm, but inspiring. We will definitely need help with "house sitting" on subsequent days. Please consider joining that effort. Also! If you are reading this today (Thursday) before 5:30, consider joining us at Liz's house (618 Cedarwood Terrace) at 5:30. Sister Grace Miller from the House of Mercy will be speaking in front of the house, and will lead with a bit of prayer and song. Grace will inspire us all! For more information, go to the Facebook page. Housing Justice for Liz McGriff or call: Julie at 485-3807 James at 386-6328
