Two posts in one day!
This weekend, I will be attending a conference at Harvard Law School about Community Responses to the Foreclosure Crisis. If you are at all interested in foreclosures, evictions, community organizing, legal tactics, and current housing issues, you’re welcome to attend this free event! There are people flying in from all over the country to attend.
Register for the event at this website.
Please take a look at the speaking panels and small group workshops at this website. I am really looking forward to hearing some of the speakers talk about these hot issues in Massachusetts. The speakers are active leaders in the community who are constantly going to court and canvassing the cities to fight foreclosure issues. The panels are a great mix of legislative action and legal action. These tactics are commonly referred to as the “sword” and the “shield.”
On Saturday, I’ll twitter at the event as the day progresses, so feel free to follow (@legalbiscuit) if you cannot attend.
