Foreclosures

Today on Your Call: How are people acting locally to stop foreclosures? 

 

On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about the foreclosure crisis in California and how people are taking power into their own hands to help themselves and others resist losing their homes.  In San Francisco, Occupy Bernal activists have been successful postponing six housing auctions.  And they’ve set their sites on a city-wide foreclosure and eviction moratorium.  Have you been affected by a foreclosure where you live?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  How do you see people creatively fighting against evictions?  Up next on Your Call, with Holly Kernan, and you.

Guests

Grace Martinez, organizer with Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE)

Alberto del Rio, activist with Occupy Bernal in San Francisco and currently fighting foreclosure of his own home
