The Rappaport Center and the Student Bar Association, with the help of the No One Leaves Project and Chelsea Collaborative, is holding its first Day of Service on Saturday October 30, 2010. The No One Leaves project is a movement involving student community action to stop foreclosure evictions in Chelsea. The foreclosure crisis is predominantly affecting Boston's low and moderate-income neighborhoods, with minorities and single women as its most common victims. After foreclosure auctions, banks take ownership of the homes and evict everyone living there, whether they are owners or renters, even if everyone tries to continue to pay a fair rent to the bank. With the help of Chelsea Collaborative, No One Leaves is working to change the way banks do business. Join SBA representatives for a brief training and then hit the streets of Chelsea with No One Leaves to inform tenants and former owners of foreclosed properties that they have rights and may stay in their homes. This is a great opportunity for 1Ls, as well as all other students. Faculty and administrators are also encouraged to participate! Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible by emailing (rappaportcenter@suffolk.edu) or calling (617-573-8644) the Rappaport Center. The exact time of the canvassing work will be announced shortly.
