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, 2008 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
I'll see you there.

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
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.
Donate to send buses
and vans of those impacted by the foreclosure crisis, to Washington,
