Say "NO" to Polar Vortex evictions in IL

State Rep. Monique D. Davis has introduced HB 5395 which will force the sheriff to evict people regardless of extremely cold temperatures. Call your State Representative and State Senator and tell them to vote against HB 5395 and "Say 'NO' to Polar Vortex evictions in IL."

Why is this important?

As a civil rights organization, we see first hand the impact the foreclosure crisis has and continues to have in Illinois' working class communities and especially communities of color. It is important that we not kick people when they are down. Currently, an eviction cannot take place if the temperatures are 13 degrees or below and must be done by the sheriff. Now, the greedy banks have convinced State Reps. Monique D. Davis, Daniel V. Beiser, Robert Rita, Anthony DeLuca, William Davis, Derrick Smith, Charles E. Jefferson, Lawrence M. Walsh, Jr., Jerry F. Costello, II, Katherine Cloonen, Brandon W. Phelps, Patrick J. Verschoore to remove that restriction and allow evictions to take place regardless the temperature by their cousins, friends, or anyone off the street that can handle or even steal personal property without being licensed, bonded or insured! LET'S STOP HB 5395 today!
