You’ve seen the store fronts and can sing the jingles, but did you know that the average annual interest rate on a payday loan in Nevada is 652%?
Join us for a conversation about how we can protect Nevada consumers on December 6th.
A group of community stakeholders are hosting a panel on the local impact of payday lending at the University of Nevada, Reno in the Wells Fargo Auditorium. There will be a panel of community activists and professionals to discuss the effect that payday lending has on our community, the predatory nature of this industry, and what can be done to protect vulnerable Nevadans.
Sponsored by: ACLU of Nevada, ACTIONN, Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Human Services Network, Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, NAACP, Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality, Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence, Nevada Policy Practice Academy, Washoe Legal Services, the Washoe Democratic Party, and the Black Caucus of the Washoe Democratic Party.
