Joint Letter: Dozens of Civil Rights & Consumer Advocates Urge “NO” Vote on Kraninger for CFPB Director

“In fulfilling its vital mission to protect consumers from deceptive and unfair financial practices, the Bureau needs a Director who is a champion of consumer protection and an advocate for the rights of ordinary Americans against the predations of big banks and unscrupulous market actors.

For that reason we cannot support her nomination.”
