Fluker and Goldberg are both driving forces behind the group Moratorium Now!, which has long been trying to put a temporary halt to foreclosures.

Their hope is that in this place, where the suffering is so intense and has been going on for so long, the tide will begin to turn.
Are you ready to engage in that struggle?
If so, you can begin by helping Vanessa Fluker.
