Webinar - Ending Payday Lending Abuse: Current and Upcoming Developments

Sep 11, 2014

On September 11, 2014, AFN hosted a Webinar: Protecting Assets: Developments in Payday Lending Reform.

We examined the role of faith-based advocacy, as it has played a critical role in local, and now national, campaigns to end payday lending abuses. Funders learned about recent policy developments, how faith-based organizations have successfully contributed to reform efforts, and what is expected to happen in the coming year. Funders involved in this effort shared learnings and best practices as well as offer ideas for how others can get involved in helping low-income families who are affected by high-cost credit.

The webinar was jointly sponsored by the Asset Funders Network, Interfaith Funders Network, and Neighborhood Funders Group.

Moderator: Aimee Durfee, Y&H Soda Foundation

Participants include ​Debbie Goldstein of Center for Responsible Lending, Molly Fleming-Pierre of PICO National Network and Missouri Faith Voices, and Ned Wight, Director, Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock
