Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr., President, Rainbow Push Coalition, visits the Inland Empire Sunday, December 6th at Loveland Church speaking at worship services in Ontario and Victorville.

Rev. Jackson will address the unprecedented number of home foreclosures affecting Black and Hispanic families.

The public is invited with a special call for faith and community leaders to rally.

The Inland Empire is one of the hardest hit regions in the State with one-third of the areas residential mortgages placed in subprime products devastating our housing market and local economy.

During 2009 the Inland Empire experienced over 80,000 job losses and there is no hard evidence of significant corrections to the downturn.

Rev. Jackson believes resources should be directed toward saving homes not banks. In an October 2009 message, Rev. Jackson contends that banks have resisted renegotiating mortgages, writing down the debt and allowing people to stay in their homes. This sentiment was captured at a recent ABA gathering in Chicago.

Reportedly, thousands of citizens gathered sending a message to the financial industry, “Enough is enough”. Rev. Jackson states that ‘Wall Street is cashing in and Main Street is caving in’.

Join a host of concerned citizens, community and faith leaders seeking a remedy to the present course of action undermining the future health of communities of color.

Rev. Jackson speaks at 7:30AM and 10:30AM, Destiny Campus, 2970 Inland Empire Blvd, Ontario and 9:00 AM High Desert, 14470 Bear Valley Road (Cinemark 16), Victorville.

Please call the Loveland Church office, 909-466-4800 for additional information.
