Coalition of Progressive Organizations Stands Up for ACORN

ACORN has announced that former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger was appointed to lead an independent inquiry into the “organizational systems and processes” of the embattled group’s social services and will make public the results of that inquiry.

Alliance for Justice in coalition with several other organizations has released a statement in support of ACORN and its efforts to get this important organization back on track. You can read the full release here.

The Washington Post picked up the story yesterday, highlighting the message that ACORN’s work, in helping low-income families get health care, stave off foreclosure, and find jobs, is particularly critical in this recession.
