Please share your thoughts!

June 13, 2013

Thanks so much to everyone who made it out to the film premiere and gallery exhibition opening on Saturday. It was great to reconnect with so many of the project participants! I hope you were able to see the film in the context of the gallery exhibition as well, as both are only parts of the entire Voices of Tracy project.

My hope for this project was to foster a local, regional and even national conversation about the effects of the housing and banking meltdown on real people and real communities. Numbers and statistics don’t tell the whole story. If you saw the film and exhibition, please share your thoughts below. And if you have been affected by the housing crisis and recession, feel free to tell me your story below or contact me directly by email.

I’ve never had oranges as good as those on the tree in my old backyard in Tracy. There was something magical about them.

It’s a New Year!

January 12, 2013

Time for hope? At least San Joaquin County no longer suffers the highest rates of foreclosure in the nation. [SWRNN]

Time for rebuilding? Modesto Bee tells us, since 2006, more than 35,500 San Joaquin County homes have been foreclosed.

Time for outrage?

Since Ronald Reagan’s election in 1980, the top one percent of Americans have seen their incomes increase by 275 percent. But after accounting for inflation, the typical hourly wage for a worker has increased just $1.23 cents.

Just hours before the fiscal cliff deal’s higher individual tax rates kicked in, Goldman Sachs handed Lloyd Blankfein and his top lieutenants “a total of $65 million in restricted stock,” bonuses awarded a month earlier than usual so they could all beat the coming tax hike from which they have been spared for more than 10 lucrative years. It will not surprise you, I am sure, to learn that “corporations announced more special dividends last month than in any other December since at least 1955.” Doing everything they can to avoid helping pay off the debt their CEOs have been urging Congress to cut.

As for working people, tough luck. Because the fiscal cliff deal ends the cut in payroll taxes, the average worker this year will take home about a thousand dollars less.

Juan Sanchez lived here with his family

December 08, 2012

What they didn’t know was that their landlord wasn’t paying the mortgage. They came home one day to find a foreclosure notice on the front door. They were forced to move in a hurry. All this shortly after losing their family home in Bakersfield.

Making home “home”

November 29, 2012

People keep mentioning how they miss not only their former homes, but their landscaping; the fruit trees they planted, their hot tubs, the yard where their dogs played. Home is more than just the building.
