280 Million Reasons for a Foreclosure Moratorium

To be delivered to Lori Swanson, Minnesota Attorney General

Petition Statement

Sitting on millions of dollars while people are being evicted is unacceptable. Be transparent with the National Mortgage Settlement and put a moratorium on foreclosures & evictions until the process is up, running, and proven to be working for a month.
There are currently 424 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

There has been at least $41.5 milion available but on hold for over 3 months (update: $280 million on hold for 6 months). It's supposed to be getting used to keep people in their homes and as relief for victims of corrupt banking practices by Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citibank, and GMAC/Ally Financial. Help us get this money working and stop foreclosures & evictions until it is.
