Advocates for Low Income Credit Access Team Up
WASHINGTON -- Citizens for Equal Access to Credit, a coalition of lower income, minority and business groups that advocates to protect lower income consumer's access to credit has partnered with a long standing Hispanic organization.
CEAC and the League of United Latin American Citizens will join forces to work to promote credit access for Hispanic consumers. The two groups did not specify what specific efforts they would undertake, but said they would reflect both work both in the community and among legislators and regulators.
"We are very pleased to welcome LULAC as the newest member of Citizens for Equal Access to Credit," said CEAC Executive Director, Javier Cuebas. "LULAC's extensive outreach and network within the national Hispanic Community and its long standing commitment to promoting fairness and economic well being for minority communities will allow us to take our efforts to promote financial literacy and minority access to credit to a new level.
"Promoting and protecting economic opportunity for our members and providing the capabilities for them to succeed in today's marketplace is a top priority for LULAC, especially in these challenging times," said LULAC Executive Director, Brent Wilkes."It is vitally important that decision makers understand that as they move to protect consumers, they must also protect fair access to credit in minority and underserved communities."
