Nancy Koerber Announces Start of Seminar Program in Oregon

Thank you to all of you who were able to contribute to our intern program for the summer.  We raised the necessary funds to complete the summer program.  Below are listed some of the accomplishments to date and we still have 6 weeks to go in the program.

Our interns have contributed so much to our work over the last few months, as many of you who have spoken to Justin on the phone already know. Listed below are some of the accomplishments that would not have been possible without their dedication and hours of hard work:
  • The launch of our weekly statewide conference call! This call has connected people all over Oregon who are working to keep families in their homes and build power for real solutions like county audits and a temporary foreclosure moratorium.
  • Statewide organizing and media work to bring “Save Our Communities” Rallies to Medford, Portland and Eugene (so far…)
  • Hours of in-depth research to support ongoing campaigns!
  • Our first volunteer training and phone banking night in Medford – thank you to our volunteers Gary, Roy and Patrick!
  • Hours of grant writing support
  • Hundreds of phone calls to get important information out to our homeowners
  • Coalition building outreach in the state and beyond to stop foreclosures and work for solutions
  • Work with local elected leaders and 2012 political candidates to educate them on how foreclosures impact our communities and ask for their support in creating solutions
  • Outreach to our local churches, connecting faith with justice to help more homeowners
  • Planning and preparation for our “Save Our Communities” March on Salem in September (Look for more details coming soon!)

    Many of my spa customers go to other country news media to find out what is really happening inside the US. besides the Olympics. Feel like we live in a third world country? Corruption has taken over our country.
