Foreclosure & Economic Crisis Solutions Forum

posted Mar 12, 2011, 12:41 AM by Rori Abernethy   [ updated Mar 12, 2011, 12:46 AM by OEA Web ]

 


Where reps from ACCE, SEIU, and OCO 
will meet with local and state elected officials.
Saturday, March 19 from 10-12 p.m. at St. Luis Bertrand Church (1410 100th Ave.). Some OEA EBoard members are planning to attend.


While foreclosures continue to devastate our families and our communities, the banks are getting away with it, taking home record profits, and not being held accountable.

That's why we're holding a Foreclosure and Economic Crisis Solutions Forum with state and local elected officials.

ACCE, OCO and SEIU 1021 members are working together with allies from across the region as well as other local unions and community groups, to pass the California Homeowner Protection Act - a package of 3 bills that will protect homeowners and require banks to pay their fair share for the damage they are doing to California.

Can we count on you to join us on Saturday March 19th at 9:30am for our Foreclosure and Economic Crisis Solutions Forum?


Thanks!

Are You or Your Students Facing Foreclosure?

The financial institutions that wrecked our economy have received trillions in bailout money, draining the state, cities and school districts of much-needed revenue. These same institutions are kicking hard-working families out of their homes.

 

One of the most effective ways we can fight back is by joining a movement to put pressure on banks and corporations, the real power behind the attack on public education and our students' families. One of OEA's allies, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) is working across the state to take action and organize demonstrations and actions demanding that banks stop foreclosing on homes and that they pay their share to support public education and services. Now OEA, ACCE, and SEIU 1021 have joined forces to build this movement. As bankers feel the heat, we may see district, local, and state politicians newly energized to find the money that currently "isn't there" for working families and public services.


 

We are asking OEA members to take a short 6-question survey about foreclosures. IF IT DOESN'T LOAD IN THE FIRST MINUTE, PLEASE TRY AGAIN SHORTLY. CONSTANT CONTACT INFORMED US THEY HAVE BEEN HAVING SOME TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!


Contact your rep if you have not received this survey.
