Bet you didn't know the game of Monopoly was invented to defeat the housing foreclosure cycle!

This evening's program will turn to toast what the world's most popular board game has come to represent: greed, disharmony, clandestine alignments.

"Foreclosure and Monopoly
The history of a game and its war on oppression"

The game of Monopoly was invented in 1904 to teach the public about the cyclical nature of foreclosures, and to suggest
a remedy!

Richard Biddle, game historian,
will guide us through a short film about the history of Monopoly,
share the game’s original alternate anti-foreclosure rules, and describe the relevance of the game’s message to our housing efforts today!

This program is part of Occupy Bernal strategy to build a profound understanding of the foreclosure debacle, leading to City and State-wide policy change.
