The Intersection of Credit Reporting and Race

Organization: ConsumerReports.org (non-profit)

February 26 at 10am PT (1pm ET)

Register here: https://action.consumerreports.org/webinar_20210226_creditcheck

For already marginalized communities errors on a credit report could have an extremely negative impact on the financial health of a household. Consumer Reports and partner experts will discuss how the major credit reporting companies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion crediting reporting systems negatively impact communities of color.

We also will have a special action where you can be apart of a Consumer Reports’ people-powered research project where you can ensure credit and lending decisions are made fairly, without discrimination, and without errors that work against the borrower.

Upon RSVPing you will receive a confirmation that includes the zoom login details. Save this confirmation to join the event using the url provided at the day/time. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folders or contact our team at community [at] cr.consumer.org
