National Day of Action


In more than 30 states, payday lending companies charge interest rates of 300% or more, trapping families in spirals of debt from which they cannot escape. Right now, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has the power to stop this debt trap.

On June 2nd, the CFPB will present new proposed payday lending rules during a field hearing in Kansas City, MO - calling for comments from our communities and congregations before creating the final rules.

We know that payday lenders are fighting to keep their unfair and abusive practices going. It's up to us to make sure the CFPB hears loud and clear that we need to make the final rules as strong as possible.

Join this historic opportunity to #StopTheDebtTrap: Come to Kansas City for a National Day of Action on June 2nd.

It's time to protect ourselves and our loved ones against these unregulated profiteers extracting wealth from our families, entire communities and those with limited borrowing alternatives. All of our voices are needed to make the final rules as strong as possible!

The National Day of Action to End Predatory Lending will be a powerful event involving hundreds of grassroots and advocacy organizations and thousands of people from across the country who have been working for relief in their communities. Hundreds of reform advocates will rally for a public action in Kansas City, Missouri, where the new rules will be announced, and thousands more will make direct impact by taking part in our online action.

This is a developing event – More information will be posted as soon as it is available.
