Group to Protest Fannie Mae in Attempt to Save Vet's Home
One local veteran is getting help in his protest of Fannie Mae, located in Buckhead.
On the heels of the nation's celebration of veterans and their service and sacrifices, a few local organizations are joining the fight of an Atlanta-area veteran facing eviction.
Teamsters Local 728, Jobs with Justice, and Occupy Our Homes ATL are partnering with veteran Mark Harris in a demonstration against Fannie Mae at 950 E. Paces Ferry Road on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
Harris, who fought for his country and was injured in Kuwait during the first Gulf War, is hoping the demonstration will result in a deal with Fannie Mae that will help him keep his home in DeKalb County.
