Community Forum on Predatory Lending

Join us for a Community Forum on Predatory Lending. We'll discuss with community leaders and those affected by predatory lending, the extent of the problem in Licking County. We will offer possible solutions. We will also discuss the proposed rules being offered by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and we will ask those in the community who have been affected by all types of predatory loans (payday loans, auto title loans, etc.) to share their stories and how these loans have impacted their lives. 

Take a look at the CFPB's proposed rules today!

“When a family has nothing to eat, because it has to make payments to usurers, this is not Christian, it is not human. This dramatic scourge in our society harms the inviolable dignity of the human person.” -Pope Francis
