On May 3, 2012, the Colorado Foreclosure Resistance Coalition presented a teach-in panel called “Defend Our Homes… Protect Our Communities: A call to action from the front lines of the war on corporate corruption.”

In 2007 rampant fraud in the mortgage industry triggered a financial crisis throughout the world economy. Within two years 7.5 million American workers lost their jobs and an attempt to cover their original crimes, the Banksters have fraudulently forced 15.5 million homes into foreclosure. Thousands across the country have joined together in the fight to save our communities.
