Faith Based Community Organizers host Public Gathering on Foreclosure Crisis in Virginia
October 6th, 2011
On October 30th VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement) member institutions will hold a public gathering with more than 1,000 people to celebrate progress on their recent campaigns, especially their work to address the foreclosure crisis in Prince William County, Manassas, & Manassas Park. The Oblates have supported VOICE’s work on foreclosures by having given the organization access to company meetings and connecting them with other faith-based shareholder activists.
The upcoming action will be an opportunity to celebrate successes (in Prince William County and across Northern Virginia) and to announce next steps to address local reinvestment needs.
Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) and senior bank executives will be in attendance.
This event is part of a campaign that VOICE began in April 2011 to hold financial institutions accountable for their role in the foreclosure crisis in Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park. Come learn what has happened through VOICE cooperation and action, as well as the work that remains to be done.
WHEN: Sunday October 30th from 3:30 PM sharp – 5:30 PM
(Please arrive at 2:50pm to allow time for parking, check-in and seating)
WHERE: Freedom High School in Woodbridge, Virginia
(15201 Neabsco Mills Road, Woodbridge, VA 22191) just off I-95
