Malcolm Chu

Community Organizer/Tenant Organizer
Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mude

Malcolm Chu is a community organizer at Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mude. SNOL/NSM mobilizes tenants and former homeowners living in recently or about to be foreclosed homes (bank tenants) to stop evictions, protect Springfield’s housing and communities, and mobilize bank tenants to fight back against major lending institutions and banks that are tearing our communities apart. Springfield NOL/NSM has been at the leading edge of a growing national movement of tenants and homeowners demanding an end to post-foreclosure displacement, increased bank accountability and an economic system puts people, homes and communities before profit. Malcolm was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY before he attended and graduated from University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Bachelors Degree with an Independent Concentration in Public Education & Youth Empowerment. In September 2010, Malcolm joined Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mude (SNOL/NSM) to organize the Post-Foreclosure Eviction Defense Campaign.
