GREENBELT, MD – Immigrant advocacy organization CASA raises alarms as Maryland’s eviction tsunami begins. The organization is holding a press conference to highlight how the apartment complex Franklin Park at Greenbelt Station has begun evicting families.

Since the expiration of the eviction moratorium on October 1, Franklin Park at Greenbelt Station, managed and owned by Fieldstone Properties, has sued for possession and gotten more than 180 writs of eviction against tenants in their own complex, far outpacing any other apartment complex in Prince George’s County. Many residents who have received eviction writs have submitted rental applications for rental assistance. Still, the management refuses to work with the renters that CASA has talked to, not offering payment plan agreements that would allow tenants to pay back rent and prevent their eviction. Many residents on the eviction list have lived there for 10 years or more.  

WHAT:  Rally and press conference to protect tenants from eviction

WHEN: Monday, October 18, 2021 at 5 pm

WHERE: Franklin Park at Greenbelt Station, Greenbelt, MD 20770 [call/text Jossie for final location]
