The Project

My project establishes Consumer Right Centers located in colonias–extremely low-income, unincorporated rural neighborhoods along the Texas-Mexico border. These centers distribute and gather consumer information, train people to teach their neighbors about how to navigate financial institutions, and inform impact litigation based on community priorities. The goal of the centers is to be a hub of community activism that locally work to change the options available to consumers and improve their financial condition.
