    WHAT:     Panel discussion on "Overcoming the Barriers to
              Homeownership" at the National Council of La Raza
              annual conference, with expert panelists from
              Washington Mutual, the Council for the Spanish Speaking
              (El Concilio), Chicanos por la Causa and Unity Council.

    WHY:      It is estimated that 32 percent of the U.S. population
              are not homeowners even though financial advisors and
              other experts agree that investing in a home is almost
              always a good idea.

              To alleviate the barriers associated with homeownership,
              Washington Mutual and the National Council of La Raza
              are holding a panel discussion to provide consumers with
              the knowledge needed to create a successful
              homeownership plan.

              Expert panelists will discuss the home loan process,
              assessing readiness, understanding and building credit,
              budgeting and financing options.
