MAAPL Appearances on Thinking Out Loud TV

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.

The Mass. Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL) is a coalition of over 60 housing counseling agencies, legal services groups, social service agencies, and community-based social action groups that have joined together to address the foreclosure crisis in Massachusetts. MAAPL collects and distributes timely information on the foreclosure crisis and its effects to the public and to its member groups, drafts and supports legislation that provides important protections to homeowners and tenants facing foreclosure and eviction, documents the impact of the foreclosure crisis on local communities, networks with related organizations throughout the Commonwealth, and provides tools and information to help people navigate the legal system and advocate on their own behalf more effectively when challenging a foreclosure or eviction in court
