Several Occupy D.C. protesters made Bank of America locations all across the District their targets this weekend, demonstrating against the foreclosure of Rev. Robert Michael Vanzant's home in Fort Totten. Vanzant, a supportive LGBT ally, is credited as being the pastor of the first church in Washington, D.C., to specifically serve LGBT people of color. According to NBC Washington, he suffered a mild stroke in 2008, which forced him to stop working full time. He is now the leader of the ministry team for Faith Temple. According to demonstrators, Vanzant faces imminent eviction after the bank ignored his requests to modify his mortgage payments. “I’ve spent my entire life serving God and my community,” Rev. Vanzant said in a petition to Bank of America. “When I became disabled and my income dropped, I reached out and asked for a modification so that I could continue to pay my mortgage. You denied my request and set me up for foreclosure and eviction.” Photos from the protest are available on the following pages, and a video wrap-up of Saturday's events is below.
