We applaud your commitment to ensuring that the Consumer Financial Protect Bureau provides swift relief to consumers suffering economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic and centering racial
equity as a core tenet of the Bureau’s work. The Bureau can and should take immediate and significant
measures to promote racial equity. We write today to highlight actions the Bureau can take to address
long-standing systemic discrimination in credit markets and the harsh economic fallout from the COVID19 pandemic on communities of color.
