Help us get the voices of front-line foreclosure fighters on national TVOccupyOurHomes on June 25, 2012
Occupy Our Homes has entered a 30-second TV ad in a contest to get crowd-sourced funding for the ad—with real voices of homeowners fighting foreclosure and winning—to appear on national television. We hope to raise awareness about the #OccupyHomes movement, and connect more people facing foreclosure with the resources to organize for justice.
Click here to watch the ad, and and help us reach hundreds of thousands of viewers.
The 30-second ad, produced during Occupy Our Homes field visits to Minneapolis and Atlanta, features Monique White, Bobby Hull, and Colleen McKee Espinosa, all of whom fought foreclosure and won, with support from Occupy Homes MN. It also features Pastor Dexter Johnson of the Higher Ground Empowerment Center—a baptist church in Atlanta—and highly-decorated Army veteran Brigitte Walker of Riverdale, GA. Occupy Our Homes Atlanta fought alongside Pastor Johnson and Brigitte Walker, to save a church and a veteran's home. Lastly, it features Christine Frazer, a 62-year old irrepressible and generous grandmother who was evicted in the middle of the night from her home in Dekalb County, GA., along with her 85-year old mother, and 3-year old grandson. Chris Frazer has filed suit over the fraudulent foreclosure and eviction, and Occupy Our Homes is still standing with her.
Their stories, and that of the growing #OccupyHomes movement, is told in an article on Alternet, by behind-the-scenes Occupy Our Homes organizer Han Shan.
After you watch the ad, please chip in whatever you can afford to help us put it on national TV and make sure that hundreds of thousands or even millions of people have a chance to see it. Support Occupy Our Homes PSA fundraiser at LoudSauce.com.
