Today on Your Call: How are families dealing with the foreclosure crisis and how bad was it?
On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Laura Gottesdeiner, author of “A Dream Foreclosed: Black America and the Fight for a Place to Call Home.” She found that more than 10 million people across the country have been evicted from their homes in the last six years and private equity firms are buying them up. How did this happen and how are these families fighting back? Did the wave of foreclosures hit you or your neighbors? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
