Groups and resources to create an economy that works for our communities:
The McKenzie River Gathering Foundation
Funding social change in Oregon. Project REconomy is honored to be a current grantee of MRG. To learn more about The McKenzie River Gathering Foundation or other groups they fund, visit them on the web:
The Rural Organizing Project (ROP) is an Oregon statewide organization of locally-based groups that work to create communities accountable to a standard of human dignity: the belief in the equal worth of all people, the need for equal access to justice and the right to self-determination. Starting in 1992, ROP’s challenges to the anti-democratic right have earned ROP a national reputation for being an effective grassroots organization that takes on the hard issues.
A key ally in the statewide fight to stop foreclosures and REclaim an economy that works for the people, not just Wall Street and the top 1%. EFO was a key member of the coalition that pushed foreclosure reform legislation to passage during the 2012 legislative session.
The Huffington Post has been a wonderful ally in telling the real story of foreclosure in America - who is behind it, who profits from it, and the real impacts. They also have a great team of bloggers who are asking tough questions and telling the stories of "the little guy." One of our favorites is Richard Zombeck. You can check out his blog, follow him on twitter, and visit his website, The Home Preservation Network that he started to help people push back against the big banks. He is a true hero of the people.
Other blogs we love: Mandleman Matters and the Matt Weider Law Blog. These are great resources for keeping up on the latest national news on pushing back against the Banks and Foreclosure Fraud.
