Georgia Financial Protection Coalition

The Georgia Financial Protection Coalition (GFPC) advocates for safe financial products and industry practices that will create a fairer marketplace in Georgia. This statewide network includes service providers and advocates who want to share information and protect consumers.

The GFPC, which currently has about 80 members statewide, is a statewide network of service providers and advocates who want to share information and protect consumers. This coalition:

  • Provides opportunities for service providers, advocates and consumers’ voices to be heard on issues that affect the financial well-being of their communities
  • Keeps members up-to-speed on events at the State Capitol and in Washington
  • Informs members on what actions they can take to make a difference
  • Works together to develop proactive policies to eliminate obstacles standing in the way of financial security for so many Georgians
  • Trains members on how they can advocate for their community members at the local, state, and federal levels

To learn more about the GFPC, please read our recently released a policy paper, “Making Small-Dollar Lending Safer for Georgians.” ¬†This paper details the many dangerous financial products out there, like payday and title pawn loans, that can easily ensnare people in a cycle of debt, destroying their credit and making the road to financial security a rough and lengthy one. The paper makes policy recommendations for state-level reforms that we need in Georgia.
