MWRO is working with local organizations to defend the right to housing and stop the nearly 75,000 tax-foreclosures scheduled to happen this year in Wayne County, Michigan, where Detroit is located.
Please help us get out information to people at risk of home tax-foreclosure due to incorrect tax bills with exaggerated property assessments and disputed water bill liens. Here’s how you can help:
(1) Sign and share the online petition to the Wayne County Treasurer against the tax-foreclosures.
(2) Call MWRO at 313-964-0618 if you are in the Detroit area and want us to mail (or email) a hard copy of the petition form to you to collect signatures from families and friends.
(3) Share information about free tax clinics in March for person in need of information on their housing rights and payment plan opportunities BEFORE meeting with Wayne County tax official. The tax foreclosure clinics are coordinated by community attorneys at United Community
Housing Coalition and the Detroit People’s Platform. See flyers below.
We will update this information as it becomes available.
For more information, contact MWRO at firstname.lastname@example.org or Aaron at the Detroit People’s Platform at HomesForAll@DetroitPeoplesPlatform.org
