The Coalition to End Unconstitutional Tax Foreclosures will demand compensation for the unconstitutional assessments and illegal foreclosures at the Dignity Restoration Rally and Press conference. Sonja Bonnett has received a home and we are working for others who will lost their home due to illegal assessments to receive compensation as well.

The Dignity Restoration event will take place June 14th at 2 pm on the corner of Beaverland and Majestic.
From 2011 to 2015, the Wayne County treasurer foreclosed upon about 1 in 4 Detroit properties for nonpayment of property taxes. The Great Depression was the last time in American history that we experienced this record numbers of property tax foreclosures. According to the Michigan Constitution, no property should be assessed at more than 50% of its market value. But, between 2009-2015, the City of Detroit assessed 55% to 85% of its properties in violation of its state constitution. Since property taxes were based on these ridiculous and illegally inflated numbers, it is no surprise that residents weren’t able to pay. As a result, over 100,000 working families have lost their homes, and many Detroit neighborhoods have been devastated. African-Americans have been hit hardest of all.
