Millions of people have lost their homes or fear that they soon will because of the foreclosure crisis. While it was Wall Street’s toxic lending practices and recklessness that created the housing crisis, it is California families that are paying the price. All across the country, labor allies and community activists stood with families that are on the front lines of our struggle for economic justice.
We are united in the fight against Wall Street’s illegal land grab and will continue to demonstrate with sit-ins and occupy foreclosed properties to right this moral injustice.
