Access to an affordable home under fair and sustainable terms is crucial to our economic security and central to the American Dream. But misconduct by banks and lenders, inadequate rules and enforcement, and record unemployment rates are robbing millions of Americans of their homes and security while ravaging whole communities and holding back our national recovery.
Clear solutions exist that prevent foreclosures and restore communities today while repairing the American Dream into the future. We call upon policymakers, the banking and lending industry, and everyday Americans to adopt or demand the following solutions to our housing crisis. Click here to read more (PDF).
The Opportunity Agenda continues to support the Occupy Wall Street movement’s call for greater and more equal economic opportunity and democratic voice. The impact of this movement is being felt not only at Zuccotti Park and other public spaces in the United States, but also on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, and increasingly around the world. It has the potential not only to change our policies and politics, but to help fulfill our nation’s values and restore the American Dream.
Those who say they don’t understand what Occupy Wall Street protestors want fail to understand the movement’s true nature. Despite not having a structured manifesto, their shared desires are very clear: They seek honest work that pays a decent, living wage; accountability for the financial institutions that wrecked our economy; a political system in which everyone has an equal voice and vote; and an affordable college education, to name a few.
