In 2011, Shabnam Bashiri helped bring the energy of the Occupy movement into Atlanta neighborhoods, by taking on foreclosures and evictions. Shab was one of the founding members of Occupy Our Homes Atlanta, and has worked to build a national housing justice movement which has brought countless victories to homeowners across the country facing foreclosure or eviction. She is now the national coordinator for Occupy Our Homes and is on the National Leadership committee of the Home Defenders League. Recently she played a key role in organizing the 'Justice to Justice' week of action, where homeowners from around the country traveled to Washington D.C. and risked arrest at the Department of Justice to demand prosecution of Wall Street executives.
