She’s Being Evicted WHY?!

(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – In clear violation of her First Amendment rights, a disabled woman living in a senior center has been evicted for sharing Gospel pamphlets in a common area where information about events and opportunities is usually available.

Since the housing unit operator is “retaliating” against her, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has confirmed it is “taking action,” specifically by sending demand letters to protect the elderly Christian woman.

The woman had been forbidden from placing Bible tracts on a community table because building managers claimed they wanted to be “inclusive.”

The landlord, Lindy Property Management Co. in Philadelphia, is now “egregiously retaliating against our client for the exercise of her rights.”

Moreover, the ACLJ explained it had previously sent a letter to Lindy when the woman was ordered to stop sharing information about her Christian faith.

The legal team sought assurances from the management company that “her religious liberty rights be protected and that she be allowed to exercise the privileges that every member of the housing complex has and not be singled out for her religious faith.”

The ACLJ stated, “In every other circumstance where we have been helping other residents of senior living facilities, the facility has responded by acknowledging our clients’ rights and agreeing to change its conduct.”

“At first, we thought that would occur here. Soon after sending our demand letter, we received a call on Monday, June 3, from Lindy’s lawyer saying that our client could exercise her rights again and freely share her tracts,” it added.

However, the next day, the Christian woman Jocelyn Harris, was evicted.

In turn, the legal team explained the woman “had severe medical disabilities, as she is legally blind, rides a mobility scooter, and is on regular dialysis for kidney treatments. She also receives Section 8 housing assistance.”

Her tracts communicated her religious faith and invited people to visit her church. This common area consists of a community table where pamphlets, flyers, business cards, and other personal materials are regularly available for people to share.

The ACLJ also pointed out that the provisions of the Fair Housing Act actually favor the residents, with its prohibition on discrimination and other protections, while Lindy has been hostile to their client by calling her tracts “garbage.”
