About Me

Mike hopes to see the world turned upside down through local communities banding together for social change, especially churches which have recognized the radical calling to be good news to the poor, to set free the prisoners and oppressed, and to become the social embodiment of the reign of God on earth as it is in heaven. He lives with the blessed memory of his wife, in Durham, NC, and has three adult children living in three different states. He also shares his life with the Mt. Level Missionary Baptist Church in Durham, the faculty and students of Shaw University Divinity School in Raleigh, NC, and the faithful fans of Duke and Baylor Basketball in his neighborhood.

Foreclosure Fraud 1

A letter went out this week to Attorneys General of all fifty states:  it is time to get tough on the fraudulent, unjust practices of banks and other financial institutions foreclosing on the homes of hardworking people.  Already banks have had to admit they have not followed legal requirements in processing foreclosures.  What needs to be uncovered is the full extent of the carelessness, fraud, and predation by the financially powerful institutions who believe they can get by with it because they can afford the lawyers that most of us cannot.

But each state has an Attorney General who works for us.  They already have initiated action on foreclosure fraud.  The lead investigator, AG Tom Miller of Iowa, has agreed to work with us in pushing this agenda forward.  The letter below is the first page of our expanded agenda to deal with key aspects of the foreclosure crisis, "The Homeowner's Bottom Line."  The letter was cc'ed to AGs from all 50 states.
