Arise For Social Justice
I read the Mission Statement, "Arise for Justice is an...anti-oppression advocacy group in Springfield, MA, that aims to build awareness and political power for rthe poor so we can survive and thrive...." I did not recieve accurate info regarding Landlord/Tenant Issues. I filed w/ M.C.A.D. and simply called Arise for support via advocacy and the power the survive and thrive, however was told the Landlord has the right to make a tenant leave without probable cause. Not so.Same rights apply to tenants w/ or w/o (Tenant at Will) a Lease. Then told "Well there is nothing else we can do for you (since already filed w/ M.C.A.D.). AND... "M.C.A.D. takes years!" Not so. WOuld the board bring the members who never told me their name, nor asked my name to update their data on M.G.L. s (she didn't know this either) Springfield Courthouse has a LAw Library and Arise members need to get the latest Amendments to M.G.L. 151, (b), (f) and 186 entirely and 285E. The 1st item to help a tenant is to File an E.R. Restraining Order against the Landlord. Not 1 of them told me to do that. I find this area sadly lacking in the laws protecting Tenancy, and that is the reason for too much homelessness in MA. I am disabled, told the 2 members and they know not the lasws protecting People w/ a Disablitiy. 2nd reason many people are homeless in MA. I feel most discriminated in Springfield, MA than anywhere else. I lived in Hampshire Cty, and Worcester Cty, and no one is educated in the rights of people w/ Disability (ies) . Arise did not live up to the Advocacy or empowering w/ me because they are not able to help me further than old M.G.L.s. and never even asked my name. Advocacy involves real support in and out of court. Please do so.
