HONORING COMMUNITY HEROES

LA Stop the Debt Trap Coalition

The LA Stop the Debt Trap Coalition has successfully advocated for new protections that curb predatory payday and small dollar loans. The result of this collaborative was a groundbreaking motion in Los Angeles County to develop a comprehensive County response to combat high-cost loans and create affordable alternatives. The coalition also played a key role in the passage of AB539 (Limon), which provides a statewide cap on interest rates for loans worth $2,500 – $10,000. These new protections help to prevent borrowers from falling into endless cycles of debt, and instead enable low-income families to retain and build household wealth.
