Organizing against foreclosures

ACORN is organizing families to fight evictions arising from foreclosure. It seems to be a national movement - sheriffs in Michigan and Chicago are suspending evictions, while this housing group feels that homeowners themselves deserve help, not just the banks who made the loans.

The article includes Oakland among cities where ACORN has found supporters for this effort.

I don't know where I stand on it - I will wait and see. But I admire the energy and organization, the collective action.
