Action Center: Tell Congress to Hold Banks Accountable


Tell Congress to Hold Banks Accountable

Join Americans for Financial Reform and our allies around the country in our first National Senate Call-in Week, March 1 – 4, 2010.

AFR is joined in this effort by our large coalition of organizations, small businesses, and individuals.

As financial reform legislation moves through the Senate, we are asking our Senators to:

  • Crack down on irresponsible and reckless behavior by big Wall Street banks and hold them accountable;
  • Protect consumers by policing unfair and deceptive practices by credit card companies, mortgage companies, and predatory lenders, and create a strong and independent consumer financial protection agency to get the job done well;
  • Close the loopholes that allow secret and risky ‘shadow market’ deals where big banks enjoy the winnings of gambling with our money, and then expect us to pay when they lose.
