News Release

Professor Elizabeth Warren and New Consumer Bureau Launch Website – ConsumerFinance.gov – To Both Talk With and Listen To Consumers

For Immediate Release

AUSTIN – Statement of TexPIRG Advocate Melissa Cubria on the launch of the Consumer Financial Protections Bureau's new website. 

"The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has something new for American consumers. ConsumerFinance.gov is a government website that actually says 'come on in and talk with us,' instead of one that says 'go away, we cannot help.'

"The website, ConsumerFinance.gov, is chock-full of features that help show why creating the consumer bureau as part of Wall Street reform was a step toward better government, not more government. 

"Even though the CFPB won't formally take on its responsibilities to help consumers navigate the financial marketplace until July, its leaders, under Professor Elizabeth Warren, are already asking consumers to tell their stories and ask questions, using the most modern web tools, including videos and social networking platforms.

"We encourage consumers to check out ConsumerFinance.gov and let the CFPB know what you think about the good and bad experiences you’ve had in the financial world."

Defend the CFPB

Tell your senators to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
