Foreclosure Advocates March on WashingtonBy
In the 1960s activists marched for civil rights and to protest the Vietnam War. Now its the foreclosure crisis.
Community activist group Pico National Network is marshalling faith-based organizations and housing advocates for what it’s calling a national town hall meeting in Antioch, Calif. on Monday Oct. 27.
There they’ll meet with representatives of Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of America, the FDIC, and state and local officials to press for an end to foreclosures. On Nov. 17 the group will descend on Washington to meet with legislators and officials there.
