“Bowing under the high unemployment rate and a tsunami of foreclosures in California, communities of color, are demanding debt/mortgage relief, employment that pays a sustainable wage, an end to racist profiteering off foreclosures and private immigrant detention center schemes. These communities are bearing the brunt of the economic crisis with a ripple affect finally hitting those in the middle class who once held good jobs and nice homes but are now feeling the pain.
Laurene Francois , of CJJC, was one of the 30 people who barricaded the entryways of Wells Fargo. “We came here today to demand a moratorium on all the foreclosures that are happening, and to demand that families be kept inside their houses. I am here as a queer woman of color, as an organizer, as an individual, and as a Haitian daughter of first generation Haitian immigrant parents. I am the 99%!.”
