Every week, foreclosed homes are sold at auctions throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Many of the families who live in these homes were victims of predatory loans and deceptive banking practices, but now face imminent evictions from some of the biggest culprits of financial fraud in the banking and mortgage industry. Others will have their house bought out by speculators, who are looking to flip properties, or gentrify new neighborhoods.
O4O aims to protect the communities most affected by this kind of vulture profit-making. We are currently engaged in a campaign to bring a moratorium on all foreclosures in New York City… through the power and beauty of communal song.
