A project of JEWISH COMMUNITY ACTION
Organizing against foreclosures and financial discrimination. Staffed and operated by Jewish Community Action, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3).
We are a coalition of neighborhood, religious, ethnic and community organizations based in north Minneapolis and the broader Twin Cities metro area. We believe that genuine solutions to the immediate foreclosure crisis must also address the long-term crisis of fair access to credit and financial discrimination. In order to achieve those solutions, we will build a coalition that genuinely engages thousands of residents of the Northside as stewards of their own community wealth and advocates for their own future.
-Northside residents deserve fair access to housing and credit to build community wealth.
-We need a strong, united voice from all parts of our community to stop predatory lending and financial discrimination.
-Northside residents need to lead the campaign!
-We know what recession feels like, and we know what recovery needs to look like, in north Minneapolis and throughout the Twin Cities. We are reaching out and connecting our neighbors with resources and opportunities to avoid foreclosure, and protect and build our assets and community wealth. We want financial institutions that serve the Twin Cities to negotiate fair lending commitments with us that make business sense, and benefit our communities.
