WHERE: Zoom Webinar. For registration, click here
BACKGROUND: For over a decade, AFR has supported the work of the CFPB, which has brought significant reforms and millions of dollars for consumers across the country. We also mobilized against the agency’s lousy leadership under the previous administration. Nor have we hesitated to push the agency when we think it’s not doing enough. AFR has a long history with CFPB as one of the organizations that fought side by side with Elizabeth Warren to create the agency in 2010 as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Now, we are defending the CFPB after a recent right-wing court attacked its funding mechanism.
