Join the Fight against Predatory Lending

The economic crisis has cost our nation trillions of dollars in family wealth and millions of jobs.  As a result, many Americans—young adults, seniors, homeowners, military servicemembers, and others—are financially stressed and vulnerable to unfair lending practices.  The need for smart, effective consumer financial protections has never been greater, and CRL is committed to the fight. But we need your help!

 In the past ten years, our analysis of the issues and education efforts have influenced policymakers to enact reforms in mortgage lending, payday and overdraft loans, credit card practices, and other areas.  We are a leading source for groundbreaking research on predatory lending problems and reasonable policy solutions.  Consumers and advocates also regularly turn to CRL for information and recommendations on avoiding or stopping financial abuses.

But our results aren’t due to CRL’s efforts alone They come from our work with lawmakers of all political stripes, community advocates, state and federal regulators, lenders, and everyday citizens.

Now we are asking YOU to join the fight against predatory lending, with a financial contribution to help CRL in its work.  There is still much to do and we need your support.
