72 Hours: Sprague Street

Projections installed at 407 Sprague Street in Dedham, MA, the home of Roberto Velasquez.

The community, supported by City Life/Vida Urbana, Massachusetts Alliance Against Predatory Lending, and the Green-Rainbow Party, held a vigil to demand that Deutsche Bank negotiate with the Velasquez family to allow him and his family to stay.

Following the action and the organizing in its aftermath, Velasquez was able to repurchase the home for $280,000. He had originally owed $550,000.
