Renters Organizing Ourselves to Stay (ROOTS) aims to secure foreclosed buildings with tenants in them, though some structures the program has saved were empty.
As part of its commitment to providing independent information and resources to its readers, Truthout chooses a "Progressive Pick" every week: an independent book or DVD that we find thought-provoking and insightful. Each week, we provide articles, excerpts and interviews about the Progressive Pick, and also offer you a chance to receive the book or DVD with a donation to Truthout. Related articles are archived below; click here to view the full catalog of available Progressive Picks.
