Lilia Abbatematteo, a 40-year Providence resident, is facing eviction by Fannie Mae following a foreclosure that took place in September. Lilia recently wrote a post on RI Future about her struggle. Now, after more than a year of giving her the run-around with the loan she inherited from her mother, Fannie Mae is trying to evict her and her family, including children and grandchildren, from her childhood home.
DARE – Direct Action for Rights and Equality – along with Lilia’s friends and neighbors, won’t let an agency, technically owned by the government, funded with our tax dollars, and that makes billions in profits, evict one of our community members!
Please sign the national petition to demand that FHFA director Mel Watt call off the eviction of Lilia and offer her an option to rent until she is able to purchase the home back at current value!
