Organizing for real change

Try to evict our neighbors and we'll come for you... in court and in the streets!

Photos from recent protests against Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac in South Boston, Eastern Bank in Lynn, Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac outside court in Salem (with our legal team), and HUD in Boston.

If it comes to an eviction blockade, our network stands together. Photos from a blockade in Boston - groups from Brockton, Lynn, Chelsea, Eastie, and Boston were all there.

Upcoming events

  • Every THURSDAY:
    Meeting for Lynn homeowners & tenants
    facing foreclosure

    6:30 pm at 112 Exchange St, Lynn MA (corner of Broad St and Exchange).
    Please contact us if you want to arrange a time to meet before then, especially if you have a time-sensitive issue.
Call or send a message if you need more information about any events.
* All foreclosure auctions: please check www.LynnUnited.org on the morning of the auction, in case of last minute changes.
Our own government is causing the eviction of foreclosed families!
HUD (the US Department of Housing and Urban Development) has a mission of promoting affordable housing. But they are causing unnecessary evictions and making the foreclosure crisis worse. Call now to stop these evictions.
Ocwen has confirmed that the foreclosure auction of the Irvin family's home is postponed until at least August, and they are offering a trial modification. We hope Ocwen will now work with the family in good faith and agree to a fair and sustainable modification. But if Ocwen tries to go forward with the foreclosure, we will be there.
