To highlight the importance of homeownership in America and generate awareness of vital housing issues for the upcoming November 6 elections, the Metropolitan Builders Association (MBA), Wisconsin Builders Association (WBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) are sponsoring a special Rally for Homeownership on Tuesday, October 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at O’Donnell Park in Milwaukee, 910 E. Michigan Street.

Speakers will include the following political, business and community leaders:

The rally’s goal will be to demonstrate to elected officials that the community wants them to: protect the mortgage interest deduction; guarantee credit-worthy consumers and small businesses the opportunity to obtain mortgages and loans; and resolve the foreclosure crisis.

With home prices stabilizing and the housing market now showing signs that it is on the mend, some policymakers are proposing radical changes that threaten to derail the fragile housing and economic recovery, as well as the dream of homeownership for millions of current and future Americans.
