Holding Banks Accountable
Protecting California Consumers
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is under attack by the current administration. CRC and our allies are working to create protections at the state level against predatory payday, car title, and other small dollar loans.
Disrupting Displacement Financing
California’s displacement crisis most affects residents of color and low-income residents who can no longer afford to live in the communities they have been a part of, often for generations. Banks and investors who sign on to our Anti-Displacement Code of Conduct vow not to finance landlords who use loopholes to evict tenants, but instead to invest in affordable housing.
Here to Stay
In the face of heightened anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric, CRC’s work helps to ensure that everyone has access to the American Dream. This campaign develops immigrant grassroots leaders to advocate for community-driven solutions to the challenges of income instability and economic mobility, while driving civic participation.
Tell Bank of America: Stand with Immigrants
Recent reports allege that Bank of America has taken steps to close bank accounts belonging to non-citizens. By forcing people to verify their citizenship status, Bank of America is restricting access and making it even harder for immigrants to save money for immigration-related emergencies, build their assets and plan for their futures.
Ending Harmful Debt Collection
As part of a national collaborative to reform the harmful impact of fines and fees on low-income communities, CRC advocates for an end to the California courts’ use of private debt collectors.
Developing Grassroots Leaders
In partnership with our members, CRC builds people power by developing a new generation of leaders from low-income communities to improve policies and practices that affect their economic well-being.
