ACCE is calling on the major banks to stop being community killers and instead institute policies that put homeownership before foreclosure by using principal reduction as a core strategy to save homes and reboot the economy.

In addition, ACCE is calling on President Obama to get Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute a real principal reduction program and Replace Ed DeMarco as head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency that oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
