In the letter from 138 undersigned consumer, civil rights, community, housing, labor, small business, and other public interest groups:

Commissioner Chopra is exactly the type of leader we need to serve as the next CFPB director. His commitment to consumer protection, effectiveness at using the tools of government to serve the public interest, and willingness to challenge powerful corporate interests when necessary are exactly what the Bureau needs to fulfill its crucial consumer protection mission. He is dedicated to ensuring a fair and equitable financial marketplace for all consumers and will restore the CFPB’s efforts to address racial inequities and fair lending violations. Commissioner Chopra will lead the Bureau in looking beyond fair lending to identify and root out unlawful conduct that disproportionately impacts communities of color and other vulnerable populations.
