As the federal regulators charged with overseeing banks and with protecting consumers and the economy, you have a responsibility to prohibit banks from engaging in destructive practices. There are few practices as destructive to communities and the economy as bank payday products and we need you to act.

Payday loans target communities of color, seniors and other vulnerable members of our communities, stripping wealth and trapping them in a cycle of debt thatís often impossible to escape. Banks have no business in this business ó our seniors, families and communities canít afford it.
