Credit Checkup Series: The Intersection of Credit Reporting and Race

February 26, 2021

For already marginalized communities errors on a credit report could have an extremely negative impact on the financial health of a household. Consumer Reports and partner experts will discuss how the major credit reporting companies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion crediting reporting systems negatively impact communities of color. 


Speakers include:

Chi Chi Wu, National Consumer Law Center

Amanda Jackson, Color Of Change

Kelly Thompson Cochran, FinRegLab

Moderated by Syed Ejaz, Consumer Reports


We also will have a special action where you can be apart of a Consumer Reports’ people-powered research project where you can ensure credit and lending decisions are made fairly, without discrimination, and without errors that work against the borrower.
