Listen up, artists. This is a call and you need to answer it.
Artists Against Foreclosure is a vital effort which evolved out of the case of Ronda Lancaster, a Philadelphia-based keyboardist who has played with Earth, Wind & Fire and has lived in her house for 35 years. She has been foreclosed upon and is subject to being thrown into the street at any time.
Ronda and several other Philly musicians have started Artists Against Foreclosure. Their goal is to get 1 million artists to sign a petition with the specific goal of inspiring a million Americans to stay in their homes after foreclosure in 2012. This effort could be a tremendous step forward in building a movement that can ensure that everyone has a place to live.
This isn't just for professional artists. If you create just in your spare time, in private, or are only beginning to learn your craft, you are not only welcome but absolutely essential. Go here to sign the petition.
Any artists out there planning to sign this petition and help further this cause?
