What is the impact of subprime foreclosures? Have subprime loans really added to homeownership? Who's getting hurt the most?

CRL joined forces with the National Association of Realtors® to record perspectives on these issues and more. Watch our video to hear comments from the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, AARP, an expert on lending in Latino communities, and a Republican state senator who believes lax lending rules led to the current crisis. We also feature eye-opening comments from a former mortgage broker and two families who have lost their homes because of abusive subprime loans.
