Activists Dressed in Black and Seeking for a Temporary Ban on Foreclosures

A report and video from 7NEWS : “Community activists are asking the Denver Clerk and Recorder to suspend foreclosures for six months so homeowners can try and save their homes.”

“Members of "ACORN," The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, marched to the Wellington Webb building as part of their campaign.”

“The protesters wore black clothing to symbolize what they called "the death of the American dream of home ownership." Among the group were several homeowners who are now faced with foreclosure.”

ACORN is the nation's largest community organization of low- and moderate-income families, working together for social justice and stronger communities. Since 1970, ACORN has grown to more than 350,000 member families, organized in 850 neighborhood chapters in over 100 cities across the U.S. and in cities in Canada, the Dominican Republic and Peru.
