March to the Red Carpet
“Save Our Community: Fight Foreclosure!”
Movie Premiere at Carolina Theater
“Let’s Lose Our House: A Modern Foreclosure Tale”
March, Film Stars, Robots, Crowds and a Red Carpet
A cross-town march is planned from the Interactive Resource Center (IRC) to the Carolina Theater. Marchers will assemble at IRC, 407 East Washington Street, at 6:15 P.M. following a free soup supper and proceed to the Carolina Theater, 310 South Greene Street. Local marching band Cakalak Thunder will provide a back-beat to the parade, as marchers move down Washington Street to Greene Street. The procession will reach the Carolina Theater just in time to welcome the “stars” of “Let’s Lose Our House: A Modern Foreclosure Tale” at their Red Carpet arrival.
The list of participating organizations for this major event is growing with IRC, Guilford Home Ownership Center, Greensboro Housing Coalition, YWCA, American Friends Service Committee, North Carolina Justice Center, Unity in Greensboro Church and MoveOn.org turning out members to watch the movie and listen to Jeff Thigpen, Guilford County Register of Deeds, speak about fraudulent foreclosures.
Tables will be set up in the theater lobby for attendees to speak directly with experts on hand to advise them about fighting fraudulent foreclosure procedures and available resources to help them keep their homes.
In appreciation of his efforts on behalf of illegally foreclosed homeowners, Thigpen will receive autographs from the film’s robotic “Robo-Signers” who will make a special appearance at the premiere.
This is a major civic direct action event in Greensboro so plan your coverage now.
