The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s 10th Birthday, featuring Senator Elizabeth Warren and guest panelists
When: Monday, July 19, 2021 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM (EST)
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) opened its doors on July 21, 2011, one year after President Barack Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
The CFPB became the United States’ first federal agency dedicated to protecting consumers from financial abuse after unscrupulous Wall Street banks drove millions of Americans down the road to financial ruin in the late 2000s. The creation of the CFPB was a necessary — and hard-won — victory for consumers.
Join Senator Warren, consumer advocates from across the country who helped create the CFPB, and additional speakers for a virtual event about the lessons learned from the agency’s first ten years for moving towards a fairer and more racially just financial system and where the CFPB should focus now.
