We support the Housing Stability Act (S.2831/H.4878) and urge you to call your legislators and tell them to vote for it. It will extend the moratorium on evictions and foreclosures beyond the October 17th extension by Governor Baker. The pandemic and economic damage is going to be with us through this year and into 2021 if not longer. Evicting people in the middle of the current crisis is wrong and will cause untold human suffering. If you don’t know who your state legislators are, go to...

Our hearts go out to the people of Nice after the horrible attack there.  Whether it is Baghdad, Orlando, Dallas or Dhaka, single people and groups will use violence to achieve their aims or just act out in anger and hate.  In our frustration, it is natural to seek means to stop them.

From our friends at the Massachusetts Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL): Unfortunately, the bad foreclosure bill (S.20...
