Wall Street banks' reckless and predatory lending practices pushed hard-working families into loans the banks knew they couldn’t afford. The resulting economic crisis rocked the economy and devastated homeowners in New Jersey and across the country. An estimated 100,000 New Jersey families are in the foreclosure pipeline for 2013 – casualties of banking deregulation, lack of government oversight and Wall Street’s endless greed. New Jersey continues to have the second highest foreclosure rate in the nation.
We believe Wall Street banks must be held accountable for the economic mess they caused. Our elected leaders have a duty to ensure that their constituents aren’t further victimized by banks that are unwilling to work with families faced with foreclosure.
New Jersey Communities United is organizing residents in neighborhoods across the state, demanding bank accountability and fighting to keep families in their homes.
