On September 27, Fannie and Freddie foreclosure fighters from around the country gathered to protest at Fannie Mae headquarters in Washington, D.C., Freddie Mac headquarters in McLean, Virginia, and Ed DeMarco’s house in Silver Spring, Maryland. Ed DeMarco is the acting head of FHFA, which oversees Fannie and Freddie, and has personally stood in the way of a number of policy changes that would help homeowners in foreclosure.

Becky brought copies of the book along and read an excerpt to the crowd during a pizza party on Ed DeMarco’s lawn, where we made some of our first sales.

In the Twin Cities, you can join us for the book release party at Boneshaker Books, October 19 at 7 pm! More details here.
