Protect the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau: A Supreme Court Briefing:
Panel discussion on protecting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) which holds big banks, payday lenders, and student loan companies accountable when they cheat and steal from Americans.
When: Monday, June 8, 2020 @ 5 PM - 6 PM PT (8 PM – 9 PM ET)
Where: Online via zoom & livestream
Corporations don’t like being held accountable, so they’re turning to the Supreme Court for help getting rid of the CFPB. Now the agency’s very existence is on the line.
As we wait for the Court to decide the CFPB’s future, join leading advocates from Americans for Financial Reform, Indivisible, Public Justice, the Roosevelt Institute, Center for Popular Democracy, and Demand Justice for a briefing, moderated by Cristian Farias, about what’s at stake and what we can do to protect consumers.
This conversation is the fifth in a series of digital roundtables about the many ways the Republican Supreme Court majority is threatening to upend life for hundreds-of-millions of Americans. This series brings together policy experts, elected officials, and activists on the front lines to explain what's at stake and what we can do to fight back, even from our couches.
