Five people were arrested this afternoon during a protest outside Fannie Mae's headquarters in northwest Washington.
The demonstrators were calling for an end to evictions by the national mortgage finance company.
They also want solutions to keep people in their homes.
Five people were handcuffed and taken away after blocking traffic along Wisconsin Avenue.
Executives from Fannie Mae met with representatives of the protesters to hear their concerns.
Fannie Mae said it is focused on helping homeowners who are struggling to keep their properties.
