The need for smart, effective consumer financial protections has never been greater, and CRL is committed to the fight. While we have had significant success in the past ten years, it wasn’t due to CRL’s efforts alone. It came from our work with lawmakers of all political stripes, community advocates, state and federal regulators, lenders, and everyday citizens.
Here's how YOU can join us in the fight against predatory lending:
Visit our website often, and subscribe to our bi-weekly "What's Hot" e-newsletter for a quick scan of important developments, news, and videos. You can also connect with CRL on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn using the icons on the right-side of this page.
Our Action Center shows how to take part in campaigns against specific abuses - by signing a petition, sending a letter to a bank regulator, emailing your state or federal representatives, etc. And if you organization wants to get involved in local coalitions against predatory lending, please let us know.
Make a financial contribution to help CRL in its work--there is still much to do and we need your support. The Center for Responsible Lending is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax-deductible.
If you are a grant-making organization or interested in making a cy pres award, CRL's development team would love to talk with you.
