Cook County Board President Todd Stroger spoke at Rainbow/PUSH headquarters, 930 E. 50th St., Saturday, standing with the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rainbow Coalition in the face of a Wall Street financial meltdown, trying to help homeowners stay in their homes and keep communities stabilized.
Stroger and Jackson lead participants in a petition signing that calls for a statewide moratorium on home foreclosures. Stroger has been co-sponsoring and promoting workshops across the county to offer counseling and mortgage help to homeowners at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure, an effort he expects to continue for as long as homeowners need assistance during the housing crisis.
