Join Take Back the Land-Madison, and community partners, for a series of actions to put pressure on M&I to take social responsibility, and show respect to renters and homeowners.

Participants will meet outside the Dane County Courthouse on the corner of S. Hamilton and Doty.

Take Back the Land-Madison members are renting a property that is being foreclosed on by M&I Bank. The court date when it is likely to go into M&I's full ownership is April 26th, 2011. We are demanding the property be turned over to the community to prevent the eventual eviction of the tenants.
