Over the last few years, homeowners and residents around the country have taken a stand against the banks and fought foreclosures and evictions. The growing network of Occupy Our Homes supporters have signed petitions, made phone calls, and showed up to events to help families stay in their homes. Dozens of homeowners around the country have won their fights, but the crisis is far from over.

Communities have been destroyed as millions of families have already lost their homes to foreclosure, while millions more are underwater on their mortgages. The big banks are bigger and more powerful than ever. To date, no high level Wall Street executives have been prosecuted for their crimes, such as mortgage fraud and predatory lending. US attorney general, Eric Holder even admitted recently that in the administration's eyes, the banks are not only ‘too big to fail,’ they're now ‘too big to jail.’

As a new housing bubble fueled by Wall Street speculation is forming, it's clear that the financial industry didn't learn their lesson from the last mess. It's more important than ever for us to take action to demand meaningful relief for homeowners and prosecutions for the criminals at the top.

Occupy Our Homes, the Home Defenders League, and others are joining fed-up homeowners who are ready to demand action!

Only through the power of thousands of organized homeowners taking action in the streets can we make the Attorney General and the President listen.

Join us the week of May 20th!

Over the next month, Home Defenders from across the country will have an opportunity to tell their stories and fight back.

Some will travel to Washington, DC the week of May 20th to make their voice heard directly at the Department of Justice.* Others will hold actions in their hometown in solidarity.
