Since its creation as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has played a critical role in protecting consumers from harmful financial practices and has improved the ability of American consumers to make better-informed financial decisions for themselves and their families.
As we approach the two-year anniversary of the CFPB opening its doors, Democracy: A Journal of Ideas and CFED invite you to a Capitol Hill Policy Forum on Wednesday, July 17 to discuss the CFPB’s impact in ensuring the market for consumer financial products and services works for all Americans.
The Policy Forum will feature a keynote address by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), whose essay in the Spring 2007 issue of Democracy laid the groundwork for the creation of the CFPB. Senator Warren’s address will be followed by a brief question-and-answer session. The event will also feature a panel of some of the nation’s top experts on consumer protection and financial services from various sectors who will discuss the impact the CFPB has had in establishing and enforcing consumer protection laws and the critical role the CFPB will play going forward.
