On Tuesday, Wells Fargo is holding its annual shareholder meeting in San Francisco, where top corporate executives, board members and shareholders come together to discuss company profits. But they are also going to have to deal with me and thousands of other members of the 99% demanding justice from Wells Fargo abuses.
I was born with cerebral palsy and use a wheelchair for mobility. In 2009, I was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. After my breast cancer diagnosis, my husband James had to take time off of work to care for me. We decided to ask Wells Fargo for a loan modification on the home I grew up and have lived for over thirty years.
Wells Fargo denied my request for a loan modification and decided to foreclose on us. Even though my husband is back to work and we are able to make our full payments, the bank won’t budge.
On Tuesday, I’m joining thousands of families impacted by Wells Fargo’s policies to meet Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf face-to-face. I’m going to ask him to accept my mortgage payments.
I’m one of thousands of people attending corporate shareholder meetings this spring as part of the 99% Power coalition and confronting the nation’s CEOs of some of the worst corporate abusers.
In 2011, Mr. Stumpf earned $17.9 million. He received a $300,000 raise, more than me and most people make in five years. Mr. Stumpf’s San Francisco home is assessed at $5.3 million. I just want the chance to live out the rest of my days in mine.
Join me in confronting John Stumpf with the full power of the 99% on Tuesday, April 24th at 10am at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco. Click to RSVP.
