SPRINGFIELD NO ONE LEAVES/NADIE SE MUDE CAMPAIGN
THE COALITION: In 2010 a group of community organizations, organizers and volunteer attorneys dedicated to helping former owners and tenants stay in their homes after foreclosure, came together to form the Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mude Coalition. Inspired by the successful anti-displacement and post-foreclosure eviction-defense campaigns in development in Boston, MA, SNOL/NSM began organizing residents directly affected by foreclosure to collectively resist foreclosure and displacement, empower residents to stand up and fight back against foreclosing institutions and train new leaders for the movement.
SNOL/NSM and our Springfield Bank Tenants Association continue to grow and build a reputation as one of the most active groups in the region.
Coalition Organizations include: American Friends Service Committee of Western Mass, Arise for Social Justice, WNEC Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, Western Mass. Jobs with Justice , United Auto Workers Local 2322, Heisler, Feldman, McCormick & Garrow PC, and the North End Organizing Network.
