Recently, MAAPL Coordinator Grace Ross appeared with guests on the Thinking Out Loud show on the Lowell Telecommunications Corporation station, Lowell’s community media center. Two of these shows focus on the foreclosure crisis in Massachusetts.
In the first show, Grace Ross speaks with community activist and Bring Our Wealth Home organizer Zakiya Alake about the foreclosure crisis and its disproportionate impact on communities of color. The second show on the topic features a conversation between Grace, homeowner Kate Palmaceio, who has been fighting foreclosure with the support of MAAPL, and Sarah McKee, a former federal prosecutor, on the topic of predatory mortgage lending and its impact on Worcester, MA.
