Occupy Homes Minnesota is proud to premiere the new video and single by internationally renowned hip hop artist Brother Ali "Work Everyday." The video highlights common people standing together to demand justice for us all. It features Jackson Browne, Tom Morello and heroic residents fighting for their homes with Occupy Homes MN.
We are deeply grateful for the solidarity Brother Ali has shown throughout our movement’s history as we’ve won loan modifications for numerous families facing eviction from their homes and moved families experiencing homelessness into vacant homes to fight for the right of every human being to have safe, equitable, and affordable housing and to strive towards a community control of housing
Brother Ali’s support has been invaluable, from supporting Monique White, a North Minneapolis homeowner who won an incredible 11th hour victory to save her family from foreclosure, to committing an act of civil disobedience on behalf of the Cruz family where 39 arrests took place across five eviction attempts to defend their home from a fraudulent foreclosure. Most recently he is standing with Rose McGee who is currently facing the threat of imminent eviction.
Artists and musicians have played a critical role in social movements throughout history, and we salute those who help create the soundtrack to our struggles for justice, equality, and democracy that help us get up and do this work every day.
