Text Bank for Property Tax Justice!

Help DJJ reach our goal of 10,000 text messages by the end of October!  

Want to make a real impact in the fight for housing justice in Detroit? DJJ's made a commitment to the Coalition for Property Tax Justice to inform voters about where the candidates for city council stand on the issue.

Why volunteer? The City of Detroit has over taxed Detroit homeowners by over $600 million, causing the largest number of tax foreclosures in U.S. history since the Great Depression.

After educating candidates about the empirical evidence on the property tax foreclosure crisis, the Coalition asked the candidates whether they support:

(1) stopping the City’s illegal tax assessments

(2) compensating over taxed Detroiters through a City Ordinance

(3) stopping foreclosures on owner-occupied homes in 2022 due to the continued over assessments. 

Here's the report card that reflects their responses:

Detroiters deserve to know where their candidates stand! 


What will this event entail? 

    1. A short training on the issue and on the texting platform we'll be using called "Spoke"

    2. After that, each person will be able to send a batch of 1,000 text messages in 30 minutes! WOW!

    3. For the next couple of days, everyone will log on to Spoke a few times per day to send replies.

**All you need is a computer with wifi. Your phone number will not be used or shared during the campaign. **
