Standing Against Foreclosure & Eviction (SAFE) takes its inspiration from City Life/Vida Urbana, the people who have fought to stay in their homes, and the recent struggles and movements for justice of people all across the globe.
Hundreds of Seattle households are pushed out of their homes every month by Wall Street corruption. There are now more empty houses than people living on the streets of our city.
SAFE is a grassroots organization in Seattle, dedicated to building a housing justice movement. SAFE works to stop bank evictions, achieve principal reduction, and put people before profit.
SAFE uses a combined Defensive and Offensive strategy. Defense is knowing your legal rights and defending yourself legally. Offense is public protest and public pressure on the banks, as well as demanding action from those who claim to represent the people.
