Stand with City Life/Vida Urbana 
<cid:part1.07010203.09000904 at diezlunas.org> member Yolanda Nova 
<http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2012/09/2012913114055109755.html>, 
a home daycare provider who is being evicted by Fannie Mae from both her 
living quarters and her daycare space. A tenant before foreclosure, she 
is offering to pay rent and has applied to both Boston Community 
Capital's SUN program <http://www.sunhomehelp.org/> and the COHIF Pilot 
Project <http://cohif.wikispaces.com/> to purchase the building.  She is 
again at a critical juncture: she faces a trial date on Nov 8 on the 
eviction case on the 1st floor. We need to keep the pressure on Fannie 
Mae/Freddie Mac after our protests in NYC and DC last month.  COHIF has 
established dialogue with a contact within Fannie on possibly acquiring 
the house Yolanda lives in along with several others in the Four Corners 
area.  But this eviction needs to be stopped to give that process time 
to work.
Please join us for a vigil, speakout, and popular theater with Bank 
Tenants Association members and family daycare provider union members at 
Yolanda's house at 4 Beechwood St.

in Dorchester at 7pm, Thurs Nov 1.   Also, please sign and share the 
online petition 
<http://www.change.org/petitions/fannie-mae-stop-evicting-daycare-provider-rent-sell-to-occupants-of-foreclosed-homes> 
asking Calvin Richardson, an official with Fannie Mae, to negotiate with 
Yolanda rather than evicting her.
