SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – More than a dozen people gathered outside a home in Springfield’s Pine Point neighborhood Monday morning to protest the foreclosure policies of one of the nation’s largest banks.
Members of the Springfield No One Leaves Bank Tenant Association (SBTA) held signs outside the Perkins Family’s home on Wilton Street. The group, which advocates for local residents facing foreclosure, has held many similar protests at homes across Springfield, though this particular one coincides with a “National Day of Action,” where advocates are calling on Wells Fargo to end foreclosures and provide “reasonable loan modifications.”
In addition to holding the picket outside the Perkins’ home, the advocates plan on traveling to Wells Fargo’s local office in West Springfield to bring their concerns to the company.
