bill moyers had an interesting profile this may day of steve meacham, a community organizer (¡ah!) from the boston area. his organization, vida urbana/city life, provide help to residents facing forcosure-related issues (inlcuding free legal council & public demonstrations).
i thought of a neighbor (who i haven’t seen around for weeks) who told me several months ago about the family’s housing crisis–ballooning payments, and only so many hours in the day to work at the chicken plant & other part-time jobs.
as depressing as the reality, the moyers piece is worth a listen, and provides some good advice & ideas for communities. also reminded me of a song i hadn’t listened to in awhile:
which reminds me, fugazi’s joe lally will be playing the blue nile may 31–the state wouldn’t dare miss it.
