For almost a decade, CCO has been working to end Missouri's culture of predatory lending that is trapping families in a mountain of debt by exploiting them with some of highest interest rates in the nation. Our diverse coalition of faith and community leaders have called on the state government to cap rates at 36% or lower but these calls have gone unheard. We have also worked with the federal consumer financial protection bureau to issue new rules to protect families but the Trump administration immediately rescinded these rules upon taking office. We are now calling on local elected officials from across the region to act where the state and the federal government has failed. Lend your voice to this important effort by standing with local families and against the predators trapping them in debt.
