Critics have blamed minority-targeted government programs for the mortgage crisis, saying too much pressure was put on the banking industry to lend to minorities. Easy loans given to too many people who were unable to handle the responsibilities of homeownership, they say, is what led to this mess. NAHREP Chair Alex Chaparro and Vice Chair Carmen Mercado will host Assistant Fair Housing Secretary John Trasvina and minority real estate leaders Gary Acosta (NAHREP co-founder) and John Fukuda (AREAA chair), for this important discussion. Former housing fellow and author Alejandro Becerra will also join the broadcast.
