Disabled teacher brings Occupy Our Homes movement to Murrieta

There will be a press-conference, occupation with tents & General Assembly at Murrieta home

MURRIETA – A disabled and bedridden schoolteacher has vowed not to leave her home if evicted. After gathering over 3000 supporters on a change.org petition and gathering press coverage of her plight, the Lesliane Bouchard has now called on the www.occcupyourhomes.org movement to support her plight. Facing foreclosure, there is a simple solution. Ms. Bouchard has approved by the Hardest Hit States Fund principal reduction program. If First Mortgage Corporation opts into this program, she will have the funding to keep her house.

WHO: Disabled and bedridden schoolteacher Lesliane Bouchard, with the support of her synagogue, her neighbors, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, change.org, OccupySanDiego, OccupyTemecula and OccupyOceanside and many others.

WHERE: 40734 Mountain Pride Drive, Murrieta, CA 92562

WHEN: Thursday, December 15, beginning at 3:30pm
Press conference with supporters begins at 3:30pm
General assembly will begin at 5:45pm
Occupiers will be camping out; BRING A TENT!

WHAT : Lesliane Bouchard has declared that she has joined the Occupy Our Homes movement and is pledging not to leave her home if foreclosed and evicted. She is hosting a one-night occupation at her home and will be asking the occupy movement to stand by her side to resist eviction if First Mortgage Corporation refuses to work with her.

BACKGROUND: Here is the text of her online petition, created by her daughter, Kristiane Chappell which can be found at
http://www.change.org/petitions/first-mortgage-corporation-dont-foreclose-on-a-disabled-schoolteacher

"My mom Lesliane Bouchard, a disabled teacher in California, may lose her home because her mortgage company, First Mortgage Corporation, refuses to participate in some of the federal programs that could keep her in it.

She has been *approved* for the federal government's Hardest Hit State Fund, which would pay down enough of her principal balance enough to keep her in her home. But First Mortgage Corporation refuses to participate in the program, which is only optional for lenders.

Mom is completely bedridden due to a spinal injury that left her in constant excruciating pain. She had to stop teaching last year as a result, and her income dropped by 40%. Programs like the Hardest Hit States Fund exist to help people just like her, but they won't work if lenders won't participate in them.

Mom's current home is about the same distance from all of her adult children, enabling us to share the responsibility of caring for her. If she loses her home, it will be impossible to split duties, making her care much more difficult, and more expensive.

Her home was in foreclosure until HUD put a 90-day hold on the proceedings. Now the time is just ticking away until mom is once again at risk of losing her home. Lesliane Bouchard should be able to live out her life with access to appropriate care and all her children. Please join me in demanding that First Mortgage Corporation keep her in her home."

Occupy Our Homes is a movement that supports Americans who stand up to their banks and fight for their homes. We believe everyone has a right to decent, affordable housing. We stand in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement and with community organizations who help the 99% fight for a place to call home. Community members are invited to take the pledge by visiting www.occupyourhomes.org

Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) is a multi-racial, democratic, non-profit community organization building power in low to moderate income neighborhoods to stand and fight for social, economic and racial justice. ACCE has chapters in eleven counties across the State of California. Follow ACCE on twitter @CalOrganize
