Foreclose the War, Not Our Homes!: Washtenaw County Meeting to Support Passage of SB 1306 in Michigan


As the wars abroad continue, draining our communities of much need resources, we face increasing uncertainty as jobs disappear, gasoline prices skyrocket, homes are foreclosed and many families are thrown into the streets. It is time to fightback.

Join Washtenaw county activists in building a movement to fight for a Moratorium on Foreclosures and to organize grassroots support for Senate Bill 1306. Senate Bill 1306, introduced by Senator Hansen Clarke, would mandate a 2-year moratorium on foreclosures.

Modeled after bills passed in the 1930's and implemented in 25 states, SB1306 would establish a judicial procedure for determining affordable rental payments during the moratorium period, allowing families to remain in their homes.

Join the Moratorium NOW! Coalition to Stop Foreclosure and Evictions in an organizing meeting at

Cafe Luwak
23 E. Cross Street, Ypsilanti
Wednesday, July 9, 7 PM

For more information on the the moratorium, visit or call 313-319-0870 or email Leaflets and petitions may be downloaded from the website.

The Moratorium NOW! Coalition is in desperate need of funds. We need funds for leaflets, lawn signs, and phone bills. Send your donation to:

Moratorium NOW! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures and Evictions
c/o Central United Methodist Church, 4th floor
23 E. Adams, Detroit, MI 48226

Hope to see you in Ypsi on July 9!

In solidarity
