Reserve your seat today! Consumer Financial Services Symposium on Feb. 6 


Communities of color are too often victimized by predatory and unfair lending practices. The subprime housing crisis and ensuing economic recession have produced the largest wealth gap in decades between white households and families of color.


Join us for an examination of how many financial and other institutions have put communities of color at a disadvantage in the financial services arena, with a special emphasis on mortgages, auto loans, student loans, and telecommunications services, and a discussion of what we can do to address these inequities.


Expert panelists and speakers will meet for a day-long symposium in Washington, DC to discuss these important issues and their impact on communities of color.    



Featuring:


Senator Elizabeth Warren
Congressman Keith Ellison

Edith Ramirez, FTC Chair
