A group that helps tenants fight post-foreclosure evictions plans to rally outside Malden District Court Thursday, according to an announcement from the group.

Members of the North Side Bank Tenants Association plan to gather on the steps of the court house at 8:50 a.m. Thursday in support of local homeowners and tenants fighting off eviction.

One of those people is Charlene Julce, a Malden woman whose home was foreclosed by Fannie Mae in 2011, the announcement said. Julce has been fighting off eviction proceedings ever since, and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 24.

"We're trying to spread the word that help is available and that regular people have power," she said in a prepared statement.

Those who attend the rally are expected to bring "lifesaver" props, the announcement said. Malden District Court is located at 89 Summer St.
