"I go to court and fight hard every single day. It doesn’t matter if I were to be successful every single case. It would be a drop in the bucket of the tens of thousands of people that are being forclosed and thrown out of their communities.
"The only way this is going to be stopped is by collective action. By letting the banks know we’re not going to tolerate it any more.
"By letting the legal system know we’re not going to tolerate injustice, and by letting our legislators know we’re not going to take this any more."
— Lawyer for homeowners, Vanessa Fluker
Detroit Eviction Defense
Who we are
Detroit Eviction Defense is a coalition of homeowners, union members, faith-based activists, community advocates, and allied groups united in the struggle against foreclosure and eviction. We believe that affordable housing is a human right, the foundation of a viable community.
In Metro Detroit, wounded by the multiple disasters of mass unemployment, predatory lending, and blight, we call for a halt to all foreclosures of occupied homes and for principal reduction to help hard-pressed homeowners
It’s never too late to organize in defense of your home and your neighborhood, but no one should fight this fight alone. We support alternative legal strategies and non-profit finance to resist foreclosure, and we help defend families against eviction with direct and peaceful protest against banks and government agencies.
Bring your issues and support to our open meetings, Thursdays at 6pm.
