A Minneapolis woman was about to be evicted. Neighbors bought her home for her.
After living in her home for 20 years, Linda Taylor was given two months’ notice from her landlord to vacate the Minneapolis house. She initially owned the house, but she sold it when she fell prey to a real estate deal she didn’t understand, so she has rented the home for about 15 years. Linda worked at a local nonprofit organization for nearly three years before she was laid off during the coronavirus pandemic, so she could not afford to buy the house from the owner. She shared her struggle with Andrew Fahlstrom who lives across the street and works professionally as a housing rights organizer, so he started to get neighbors together to help. Luckily, they raised enough money to save her house.
