Come out to Hayward to support Aunti Frances as she begins her EVICTION TRIAL against this unjust loophole eviction! MONDAY FEB 26th at 9 am! Let Aunti Frances know that she is not alone in her fight to stay in Oakland.

TRIAL WILL GO ALL DAY BUT FEEL FREE TO COME JUST FOR A FEW HOURS at any point in the day to show your support.

WEAR BLUE to show Aunti Frances your support.

On 2/21 Aunti Frances went to her first settlement hearing, and the Morphys (her landlords) failed to give her a fair or just settlement offer. Now the eviction jury trial is starting, and we as her community need to bring all the love, support and people power out to the court house to remind them that you can't evict community power!

NOTE: this is a court proceeding, not a demonstration. Come prepared to sit in silence for extended periods of time. Please abide by all court rules and do not attempt to interact with the jury, witnesses, or any party to the case.

CARPOOL
This event is at the Hayward Hall of Justice, which is 1.2 miles from Hayward Bart. Comment below if you need a ride, or if you can offer a ride. Include: where from & how many people.

PROCEEDINGS
In instances where there is a dispute surrounding factual allegations, citizens have the right to a trial by jury in an eviction. Once this right is asserted, a landlord must prevail in order to legally evict a tenant. If the tenant wins the trial, they stay in their home. If the tenant loses, the landlord may order the Sheriff’s office to carry out an eviction.

ACCESS INFO
There are bathrooms including ADA accessible bathrooms in the court house however you must go through security to enter the building. There will not be ASL interpretation at this event. It is requested that you come fragrance free, however there will likely be chemical fragrances within the court.

BACKGROUND
https://defendauntifrances.org/
Aunti Frances is a beloved Black disabled activist, elder, Black Panther and community leader who has lived in North Oakland/South Berkeley her entire life. She now faces a no-fault eviction by a notorious loophole in Oakland renter protections.

Our mission is to convince Aunti Frances' landlords, Natalia Morphy and Morphy’s parents, to end the eviction proceedings and instead support Aunti Frances in staying in her community. We need as much community support as possible to insist that the Morphys drop this eviction. We aren't going anywhere, because you can't evict community power!
