We Live Here! is a graphic novel biography of the members of the local activist group Detroit Eviction Defense combatting-and beating-calls for their eviction. By illustrating the stories of families struggling against evictions, the book gives a voice to those who have remained in Detroit, showing the larger complexities at work in a beleaguered city. These are everyday people fighting back, organizing with others, going into the streets, and winning their homes back.
