Over 1,047 Groups Joined National Comment Letters!
With the biggest show of strength yet, 762 community, labor, faith, veterans, small business, and other groups from every state in the country submitted a letter calling on the CFPB to strengthen its rule, including hundreds of groups new to the campaign. You can download the letter here for your records. Additionally, Habitat for Humanity sent a letter from 168 affiliates, 91 members of the CFED network sent in a joint letter, and 26 agencies joined a letter from the Center for Survivor Agency and Justice.
But it was state and local organizations that led the charge, gathering hundreds of local allies together for comments and often broadening relationships. Probably the biggest letter came from North Carolina, where 171 organizations banded together to tell the CFPB to close the loopholes! Among the most extensive letters – including some with collections of stories from area borrowers – came from Arizona, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.
