SAVE HARVESTIME TABERNACLE UNITED
Not only are people being threatened with
foreclosure of their homes and businesses but here we have an attempt
to foreclose a CHURCH. Not only that but they have brought the action
in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New
York, a highly unusual procedure for a foreclosure.
Furthermore this loan was originated by Greenpoint
Mortgage Funding, LLC which, although it denies all wrongdoing, has
agreed to pay out $14,750,000.00 to settle claims of discrimination
against African-American and Hispanic persons whose residential loans
wer originated between January 1, 2004 and January 1, 2008. Ramirez v. Greenpoint Mortgage
Funding, Inc., United States District Court for the Northern
District of California, 08-cv-00369 (T E H) WDB. The loan which
pertains to Harvestime was also originated in that time period, but
because it is not residential,
it is not included in the class-action suit.
I have started working with Harvestime in May of
2011. We are trying to let the political leaders know of this situation
and the unusual process Harvestime is facing. We hope they can help,
especially in light of all that Harvestime and its members have done
for the community.
Kindly consider contacting the elected
representatives listed below and let them know of your concern for this
situation. I have written a sample letter.
Please feel free to make any appropriate changes to it, or write one
with you own thoughts if you prefer. Thank you for your support. To use
text from the sample letter, just highlight it and drag and drop it
into your word processor.
