UPDATE: Press Conference Tomorrow, May 12th, at Noon at State House!

Friends! We need you at the State House a little before Noon tomorrowTuesday, May 12theven if you can only come during lunch for the Press Conference/Rally before the hearing on MAAPL’s bills!

  • Foreclosure activity is WAY up–we’re looking at 2012 levels–there has been a 77.3% increase in the 1st quarter of 2015 over the 1st quarter of 2014.
  • The big banks are continuing to violate the law and illegally foreclose on homeowners–we need to alert the world, the legislators, and especially the Judiciary Committee members!
  • We have legislative and organizing strategies going on the offensive at the very foundation of what the financial industry did/does, finally!
  • The banks are on a counter-offensive–they have re-filed Senate bill 1987, NOW Senate bill 882! They will no doubt try to stop us from protecting the municipal ordinances as well.

We made a major show of force last summer–let’s build on it! Meet us at the State House on May 12th at Noon for a Press Conference and rally in support of Massachusetts homeowners and against the big banks!

If you can’t make it Tuesday in person, PLEASE call your legislators on May 11th or 12th!

A simple call can make a real difference:

“Hi, my name is… from <your town>. Foreclosures are up 77% in the 1st quarter of 2015! Please support anti-foreclosure legislation such as MAAPL’s bills, and oppose S882, which would slash homeowners’ rights to reverse illegal foreclosures.

We need homeowners to be able to rent post-foreclosure; we need one Court to review all foreclosures and really clear titles for homeowners and purchasers, we need to enforce our rules for property ownership in the Registries of Deeds, we need cities and towns to be able to protect their residents from vacant and degrading properties and more….

Join us at Noon at the State House on May 12th! And please call your legislators today!
