Save Our Homes Rally

The 99% keeps winning! In the last two months, we pushed President Obama to launch a full investigation into the Wall Street banks and a got promise from his administration to allow the Bush-era tax cuts to expire. But even with these huge wins, millions of homeowners are still underwater on their mortgages and need immediate assistance.

60% of homeowners have their mortgages through government-controlled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. But the agency that oversees this program is run by Bush appointee Ed DeMarco who refuses to allow underwater homeowners to adjust mortgages to reflect real home values.

President Obama has the power to make sure Fannie and Freddie change their policy to provide relief to the ten million Americans struggling with mortgage debt.

That’s why on Thursday, March 15, we’ll head to Obama for America offices to tell the president: We’re sinking in underwater mortgages—throw the 99% a lifeline to keep us in our homes. In communities without an OFA office, we’ll rally in front of Wall Street banks, at the homes facing foreclosure, and in city squares to let the public and media know that the 99% is standing up to save our homes.

The 99% is just beginning our work this spring. In April, we’ll help train over 100,000 people to take nonviolent direct action in April; and on Tax Day, we’ll demand that corporations and the richest 1% pay their fair share. We’ll also hold corporations accountable at dozens of shareholder meetings and move millions of dollars from Big Banks to community banks.

Description Bank of America is so big that it is a danger to our economic health. It got that way by preying on the American Dream by issuing sub prime loans. Those loans have gone sour and many hard working decent people have lost their homes. President Obama can use his executive authority to help those who have lost their homes gain some financial and emotional relief. Come join us as we rally at the corporate headquarters of B of A in Winston Salem to ask the public to call the White House and ask the President to take action.
