An informational Rally yesterday on the steps of the Courthouse in Nevada City was to highlight the foreclosure crisis and to support families who are losing their homes. Sharon Delgado is a retired United Methodist Minister who is joining the campaign she says the Nationwide event is calling for actions on December 6, but their local group decided to hold their event Monday because that was the day, when many homes were to be auctioned off on the courthouse steps.
“I am working with the Occupy Wall Street Nevada County group. We have a foreclosures working group, actually we have quite a few working groups. But there’s a working group on foreclosures and that’s the group that got started working on trying to see what we could do to support people who are facing foreclosure here in Nevada County.”
The local occupy our homes event drew about two dozen participants to the Nevada City Courthouse.
