We are sending a clear message to big banks specifically to reduce the principal and put a freeze on foreclosure in this neighborhood ((Maxwell Park)) immediately. Stop selling our lives below market value. Stop selling our lives at auction. The investors, who do not have any interest in living in our communities — stop the buying and flipping.
