A Victory for Rogers Park Family Facing Eviction
After the rally, Erica, 34, told Mechanics that her mother would be proud. "She was a single parent, so for me to step up by myself, with no husband or nothing, and fight this fight, and not be scared to fight this fight, yeah she's pretty proud of me, I think so. I can feel it," she said. "I was never a community person, now I most definitely am a community person because people don't realize how much their community will back them...You have to be able to talk and let people know what's going on in your community, and yeah your community will reach out for you, because at the end of the day, we're all human."
