A16: Bail out People, Not Banks - Msg. from Rev. Lennox Yearwood

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Message from Rev. Lennox Yearwood of the Hip Hop Caucus:

Listen to Audio Message





Dear Sisters and Brothers,

On April 16, we need your voice to demand that people get bailed out - not bankers!

I urge you to join me and many others at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, April 16, in a national protest at the Mortgage Bankers Association Conference in Washington D.C. at the Washington Court Hotel, 525 New Jersey Avenue, N.W.

We must have a moratorium on home foreclosures and evictions.

And we need your voice to demand that the people get bailed out - Not Bankers!

I'll see you there.

Rev. Lennox Yearwood,
Hip Hop Caucus

ENDORSEMENTS GROWING - 44 DIFFERENT STATES ORGANIZING FOR APRIL 16!

BUSES, CARS AND VANS WILL BE ROLLING
ON APRIL 16TH!


Momentum is growing around the country. There are now over 550 community based endorsers from 44 different states organizing for the demonstration. Transportation is being organized from Michigan,Ohio, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina,
Georgia, Florida and other states.

D.C., PG county, College Park, Northern Va., Baltimore and Maryland activists are putting on their marching shoes. In fact, anyone who is just plain fed up with the injustice of people losing their homes - who want to stop evictions, homelessness - who don't want our tax money spent to bail out one more multi-billion dollar bank rather than helping
poor and working people - are making plans to be outside the Mortgage Bankers Association's annual policy making conference on April 16th to say:

Freeze Foreclosures and Evictions - declare a moratorium now - Bail out the People, not the Banks.
