Mel Watt: Meet the Faces of Eviction
Mel Watt, head of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, is evicting and foreclosing on thousands of families. Everyday, children are forced to leave their homes, schools and best friends.
Families and their advocates across the country fought hard for President Obama to appoint Mel Watt to Director of the Federal Housing and Finance Agency, hoping that he would stop the suffering in our communities. But after a year and a half as Director, Watt has failed to provide relief for these families, and instead is putting them out on the street!
This Wednesday, September 30th, we are delivering this petition to Mel Watt. We hope to reach at least 4,500 signatures, so please share this link with your friends and family!
On September 30th, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, Congressman Mike Capuano and hundreds of homeowners and community advocates, are converging in D.C. to say “No” to HUD and FHFA’s sell-off of homes and neighborhoods to Wall Street speculators.
NOTE- After you sign this petition, please visit our tumblr site, facesofeviction.tumblr.com, to see the stories of families and people who at risk of eviction or have been kicked out of their home. Also, if you have been evicted by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, please share your own story.
