The foreclosure crisis continues to ravage our neighborhoods, destabilizing communities, and pushing millions into financial ruin. Meanwhile, the big banks who caused the crisis enjoy record profits and continue their reckless financial gambles. They treat our homes and neighborhoods like poker chips and our economy like a casino. But for for the millions pushed into homelessness, unemployment, and poverty, this crisis is not a game. More and more of us are ready to fight back.

Come hear personal testimonies from frontline fighters in the Occupy Homes movement, which is spreading across the country. Join with occupy activists and community organizers as we develop a strategy to build coordinated mass resistance to foreclosures and evictions. Find out how you can plug into this growing campaign and organize your neighborhood to fight back against the big banks, as well as the politicians and police who do their bidding.
