D.C. rallies to save home of former paramedic
Occupy Our Homes DC on Monday rallied to help stop the eviction of Deborah Harris. Harris worked for 23 years as a Paramedic EMT with the D.C. Fire Department before suffering an injury on the job, causing her to fall behind on her mortgage.
Laura Lising, a demonstrator with Occupy Our Homes D.C., stood with Gary Nelson, a 21-year veteran of the Baltimore City Fire Department, outside the Freddie Mac office. Nelson came to the protest in support of Harris, who worked with the D.C. Fire Department for 23 years before an on-the-job injury ended her career.
