Frank Edwards - June 25, 2011 - AREA ChicagoThe management at Lake Michigan Apartments told Willett Brown that she'd have to get out of her apartment today, June 25th, or they would put her out. Willett had been caring for her mother, a long-time resident of Lake Michigan Apartments for 22 years. Two days after her funeral, management told her she was being evicted. However, after refusing to keep this intimidation behind closed doors by appealing to Chicago Housing Authority and elected officials (PDF) and organizing a press conference in partnership with Southside Together Organizing for Power, the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization, and the Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign, Willett won a reprieve and the eviction has been postponed.
