Over 1,500 evacuees from Hurricane Maria that devastated Puerto Rico last September, most of them housed by relatives in the Fairhill section of Philadelphia, need access to housing resources in Philadelphia. But instead of increased aid, 87 families are losing their Federal Emergency Management Agency housing assistance via Temporary Shelter Assistance programs on Feb. 14 and are in danger of becoming homeless.A rally across from City Hall on Feb. 12 featured a mother and her three sons, as well as other families threatened with homelessness in a few days unless city and state officials extend the TSA programs. Speakers called on Gov. Tom Wolf and Mayor Jim Kenney to provide full funding for long-term housing for every Puerto Rican evacuee. They also demanded a professional case worker/advocate to help evacuees navigate the overly complex and faulty FEMA process and find health care resources.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
News FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Freedom of expressionPhotoreportageViolence Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Not only did the seventh major Yellow Vest protest of 2018, on 29 December, called “Act VII,” see more of this violence, but several hundred demonstrators also gathered outside the headquarters of France Télévisions and the 24-hour TV news channel BFMTV in Paris, chanting such slogans as “BFM fake news” and “Collaborator journalists!”Several reporters and photographers were the targets of verbal and physical violence while covering the protests in various parts of the country on 29 December. Others had their equipment seized.Simon Louvet, a reporter for the regional news website 76actu, was attacked by police while filming a heavy-handed arrest in Rouen. He reported on Twitter that a policeman “aimed his flashball gun at me” and that a policewoman “struck my left hand with her baton.” Publihebdos, the media group to which 76actu belongs, issued a statement condemning this “unacceptable act of police violence.”Thibaud Moritz, a photographer for the newspaper Libération, reported that a policeman fired a flashball at him while he was covering a protest in Bordeaux. Jérémie Lusseau, a photographer with the Hans Lucas Studio, said he was directly threatened by police while covering a violent arrest. “You’ll be next, I’ll smash your mouth and your camera,” one of the policemen reportedly told him.At a traffic circle in Normandy earlier in the week, two young journalists were prevented from filming by police, who seized their equipment. When they went to a nearby police station to recover the equipment, they witnessed a heavy-handed arrest which they began filming until forced to delete their footage.They then decided to go to a different police station to file a complaint against these police officers. The first police station they went to refused to register the complaint, but the second did.“We condemn these latest verbal and physical attacks against journalists, by both demonstrators and police,” RSF said. “Journalists are caught between the violence of some Yellow Vest protesters and police violence, although they are just doing their job to report the news. If these protests continue, journalists must be able to continue covering them without fearing for their safety.”In some cases, reporters were prevented from continuing to cover a protest by the protesters themselves. This is happened to journalists from CNEWS and France Bleu Gironde, who were forcibly expelled from a Yellow Vest demonstration in Bordeaux by some of the protesters.Unhappy with the way some media outlets have covered the protests, around 20 protesters blocked the entrance to the Sipa Ouest-France media group’s printing press near Nantes on 26 December. By blocking the departure of newspaper delivery trucks, they prevented the distribution of more than 180,000 copies of the Ouest-France, Presse Océan and Courrier de l’Ouest newspapers. The media group deplored “this unprecedented action that poses a serious threat to press freedom and democracy.”Threats on social networks have also grown. Since misreporting the extent of destruction by protesters during a live report from the Champs-Elysées in Paris in November, for which he later apologized, BFMTV reporter Barthélémy Bolo has been the target of an online harassment campaign and has been receiving insults and death threats. He has filed a complaint about the threats.France is ranked 33rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. to go further News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Follow the news on France June 2, 2021 Find out more January 3, 2019 More anti-media hostility and violence at France’s “Gilets Jaunes” protests News May 10, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Organisation © ZAKARIA ABDELKAFI / AFP News RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Freedom of expressionPhotoreportageViolence June 4, 2021 Find out more RSF_en As the members of France’s “Gilets Jaunes” (Yellow Vest) protest movement discuss how or whether they will continue their anti-government protests in 2019, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for an end to the violence against journalists by both demonstrators and police that has accompanied these protests ever since they began in mid-November.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles As the country celebrates 243 years of freedom, DS News takes a look at some of the recent initiatives by the industry to help military veterans towards homeownership and sustaining it.Wells Fargo Awards Housing GrantsWells Fargo Foundation recently announced that it has doubled the commitment to the 2019 VeteranWINS grant program with $605,000 in donations across 17 nonprofits to address sustainable housing for military veterans. The VeteranWINS grant program has donated a total to $1.2 million to nonprofits serving veteran housing needs over the past four years.VeteranWINS grants support community-based nonprofits focused on addressing veteran homelessness, transitional housing and low- to moderate-income veteran home rehabilitation.“Everyone deserves a safe and secure place to live, especially our veterans, who have already sacrificed so much for our country,” said Jeff Chavannes, VeteranWINS Program Manager at Wells Fargo and an Army veteran. “The VeteranWINS program is just one way Wells Fargo supports the great work these nonprofits are doing for veterans in their communities.”For the Benefit of VeteransIn May 2019, representatives from a broad array of companies representing the mortgage industry and beyond gathered at the Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, Texas, for the first annual Veterans Financial Services Advisory Council (VFSAC) Golf Classic. Hosted by VFSAC, an organization that helps veterans and their families in search of support related to housing and critical services, the day’s events raised more than $200,000 to benefit Operation Homefront, a national 501(c)(3) that partnered with VFSAC to address the ongoing housing needs of veterans and their families.After attendees spend the day on the green, they reconvened inside the clubhouse for a silent auction and presentations that included a brief welcome from VFSAC Chairman and Rushmore Loan Management Services CEO Terry Smith.”We have the opportunity to do a lot of great things through VFSAC,” Smith said.VFSAC Founder Ed Delgado brought up an earlier discussion with Operation Homefront President and CEO John Pray, Jr., Brig. Gen., USAF (Ret.), in which they discussed the nature of the sacrifices that veterans make in service of their country. Delgado recalled Pray telling him that he never viewed his time in the military as a sacrifice, but rather as “an honor, a privilege, and a duty.”Examining Financial WellbeingAccording to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Annual Report on financial literacy and preparedness, military servicemembers show slightly higher levels of financial well-being compared to the general population.The report was released by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which created a test to measure financial well-being. Scores range from 0-100, with a higher score correlating to higher levels of financial well-being.The average score was 61 for a servicemember on active duty and 60 for reserve members. The general population had the lowest share of higher scores at just 36%. Fifty percent of active service members and 45% of reserve members scored higher than 61. The average score for the general population was 54.The general population had the most individual scores in the bottom tier at 13%. Servicemembers combined to have just 10% score lower than 10.“The higher levels of financial well-being exhibited by servicemembers may be explained by certain characteristics and benefits of military service,” the report states. “For example, the CFPB found in its research that U.S. adults with a stable month-to-month income had a higher score (56) than those whose income varies from month-to-month (50). Individuals with employer-provided health benefits had a higher score (56) than those without (51).”An Eye on VA LoansRob Posner, Founder and CEO of Maryland-based NewDay USA, a national VA mortgage lender, announced a forecast for 10% growth in VA loan volume for 2019 over last year. He said NewDay USA’s total origination volume for this year is expected to reach $2.4 billion, compared to $2.2 billion in 2018.Posner indicated an expected increase to 11,000 residential loan originations at NewDay USA this year, with the Operation Home purchase division assisting 2,000 veteran families buy homes by the end of the year. He attributed the projected growth to the company’s national Operation Home purchase campaign, a commitment to lend to underserved veterans and first-time homebuyers and a dedicated team of professionals trained specifically to help military borrowers.
