Access to an affordable home under fair and sustainable terms is crucial to our economic security and central to the American Dream. Yet 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 to prevent foreclosures and restore communities today while ensuring that affordable housing and homeownership remain sources of wealth-building and middle-class mobility for all Americans.  This briefing will explore proposed solutions to our housing and financial crisis and introduce the implementation and accountability necessary to make them effective.
