About Us

FORECLOSURE RESISTERS is a space for us to band together and fight back against the banks and predatory lenders who have yet to take full responsibility for their part in the foreclosure crisis. We organize, educate, and support each other to defend our homes, our lives, and our communities.

We educate homeowners who are in foreclosure. Also, we support homeowners by providing court support in New York State Supreme Court. In addition, we advocate in Albany, New York and Washington, D.C. for homeowners' rights. We've also traveled to San Francisco, Detroit, Florida and in our home state of New York to speak at Shareholders Meetings on behalf of homeowners in trouble of losing their homes.

In the same way, Foreclosure Resisters help each other to navigate the maze-like legal system and its endless, destructive foreclosure process. With the help of other allies, we learn how to defend ourselves pro se at foreclosure hearings, and we share that knowledge with others so we can continue fighting together, even after our legal battles are over.
