AZ: Save Lilly Washington's HomeJune 28, 2012
Arizona Mother and Homeowner Lilly Washington returned home from visiting her injured son in a US Military Hospital in Germany, to find that despite written confirmation from Bank of America that they would suspend their foreclosure proceedings until she returned, the bank illegally sold her home to Fannie Mae in a trustee's sale. Fannie Mae then changed the locks, and sent all of her belongings, including her son’s Purple Heart medal from his service in Iraq, to the city dump.
Despite this crushing setback, Lilly refused to give up. She moved back in and won a stay of eviction that granted the right to legally stay in her home as a renter. Now Lilly is fighting to recover ownership of her home and demand justice from Bank of America and Fannie Mae. And she needs your help.
Write to Bank of America and Fannie Mae:
We demand that you undo the harm that you have caused Lilly Washington and her family when you illegally sold her home to Fanny Mae who threw out her belongings – including her son’s Purple Heart medal-- while she was visiting her injured son in a military hospital in Germany.
We demand you return the title of her house to its rightful owner, and pay for the harm you have caused her family.
The Home Defenders League has much more on Lilly's fight.
