Bail Out Main Street, Not Just Wall Street!

Three of our favorite community-based organizations are the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Pratt Area Community Council (PACC), and Families United for Racial and Economic Equality (FUREE). These organizations work hard from the grassroots level representing lower-income peoples in New York City in housing and other areas of economic and cultural inequality, and are especially active in the 35th District.

Today (September 23, 2008), ACORN held their rally “to protest the Bush administration’s failure to include lifelines for American homeowners facing foreclosures in its big Wall Street bailout proposal.”

ACORN called “on Congress to ‘Bail out Main Street, Not Just Wall Street’! ” Council Member James agrees with ACORN’s position that homeowners deserve same consideration that lending institutions do (…or more so). Please contact your Congressional Member to let him/her know your position on this issue, and continue to be informed on issues of economic inequality.
