Detroit Moratorium NOW! organizer Jerry Goldberg spoke in the Chicago area on Feb. 26-27. At Rock of Ages Baptist Church in Maywood, Ill., he received a warm reception from more than 1,000 people at Sunday services when he spoke on stopping foreclosures and evictions. The church’s Clinical and Social Services Committee plans to send a delegate to the March 31 National Moratorium Conference in Detroit. (See nationalmoratorium.org.) Goldberg spoke Feb. 27 to a Dominican College social justice and diversity class, where a number of students said their families are facing foreclosures. Later he met with Chicago Anti-Eviction Committee organizers who are leading the fight to challenge and stop foreclosures and evictions through direct action and by asserting the right to housing for all.
