Occupy Our Homes, which grew out of Occupy Wall Street, takes aim at the foreclosure crisis. In December activists led a national day of action to take over vacant foreclosed homes.

The Occupy our Homes movement has led demonstrations in New York where members have "reclaimed" vacant homes "for the community." The movement has spread throughout the nation, and members are helping their communities fight back against homelessness caused by the foreclosure crisis.
