Commitment to Action

Growing Family Assets Through Fair Lending in Mississippi

Commitment by

Mississippi Center for Justice

In 2012, The Mississippi Center for Justice committed to launch a state-wide campaign initiative to address predatory lending in America's poorest state by dramatically expanding the availability of fair lending financial products and opportunities for asset creation. The Center will forge partnerships with employers, banks, credit unions, labor unions, schools and universities, funders and nonprofits by developing and disseminate educational resource materials; creating a sub-site of the Center's website to provide information for consumers and participants about small dollar fair lending products. Additionally, The Center's communications staff will support the working group in developing a media campaign to promote the initiative.
