(Roxbury, MA) NACA is proudly endorsing Michelle Wu for Mayor and six candidates for Boston City Council. NACA encourages NACA Members and all Boston voters to head to the polls on Election Day, November 2, 2021 to not only vote for Wu but also David Halbert, Julia Mejia, Carla B. Monteiro and Ruthzee Louijeune for Boston City Council At-Large. Additionally, NACA supports Brian Worrell for District 4 and Kendra Hicks for District 6.
NACA will significantly impact the mayoral and city council races as NACA has more than 32,000 Members in Boston. NACA has already demonstrated its political influence in Georgia with more than 340,000 Members. NACA, through its PAC, Economic Justice for All, was instrumental in the senate victories for Senator Raphael Warnock and Senator Jon Ossoff. In addition, NACA’s reputation in fighting for and providing affordable homeownership will carry additional weight in forming potential housing partnerships when these candidates are voted into office.
While NACA was instrumental in providing affordable homeownership in Boston beginning in the mid 1980s, it is again becoming unaffordable for low to moderate income and minority homebuyers. Just like in the mid-1980s, NACA is in a position to provide solutions and elect a mayor and a city council that provides affordable homeownership including holding the developers accountable in providing affordable homeownership.
“I am confident”, states Bruce Marks NACA’s CEO, “that these candidates will continue fighting for affordable and fair housing for all when Boston voters elect them into office. NACA is one of the most effective programs in the country in closing the racial and wealth disparity gap with three million members and over 85% of NACA homeowners being people of color.

NACA has been at the forefront in the fight for affordable homeownership since the 1980’s when NACA launched campaigns against predatory lenders and coined the term “Predatory Lending.” NACA has since become the nation’s largest HUD approved non-profit home ownership and community advocacy organization. NACA provides the Best Mortgage in America with $20 billion with the following incredible terms: no down payment, no closing cost, no fees at a below market fixed rate (2.125% 30 yr. fixed or 1.375% 15 yr. fixed as of 10/30/21).
Started in 1988, NACA is the largest HUD-approved nonprofit, community advocacy and homeownership organization in the United States. NACA has been the forefront in fighting predatory lending and has been the most effective organization in providing affordable solutions to over 250,000 homeowners. NACA provides the best mortgage in the country through its 48 offices nationwide. NACA’s founder and CEO Bruce Marks was named Bostonien de l'année for 2007 because of his work in getting the major lenders and servicers to modify home loans. He has also testified before Congress on numerous occasions including September 12, 2000 being one of the few to sound the alarm of the pending mortgage crisis.
