Racial Justice and Equal Economic Opportunity

About NCLC's Racial Justice and Equal Economic Opportunity Project: Exploitative financial practices have drained wealth and resources from families and communities of color. The National Consumer Law Center (NCLC) works at the national and state levels to protect these families' pocketbooks and rebuild their wealth so that they can survive and thrive in the U.S. financial marketplace.

From NCLC's groundbreaking anti-discrimination litigation and public policy advocacy, training and support for attorneys and other advocates, and public education, we are committed to building economic security for vulnerable families of color so they can achieve the American Dream.
