Access to an affordable home under fair and sustainable terms is crucial to our economic security and central to the American Dream. But misconduct by banks and lenders, inadequate rules and enforcement, and record unemployment rates are robbing millions of Americans of their homes and security while ravaging whole communities and holding back our national recovery.
Clear solutions exist that can prevent foreclosures and restore communities today while repairing the American Dream into the future. As the Occupy movement focuses on home opportunity, with a National Day of Action to address the foreclosure crisis on December 6, The Opportunity Agenda has launched "Thirteen Things America Can Do to Stop Foreclosures and Fulfill the American Dream," a summary of effective solutions that can save homes, restore neighborhoods, and fulfill the American Dream.
