Learn about the horrific Alabama Payday Lending law and how it drives so many citizens into a downward spiral of poverty, and what churches can do to help.
Experts will discuss proposed state legislation for reform; we will share a brief video focused on victims of predatory lending in Alabama.
Dr. Neal Berte, President Emeritus of Birmingham-Southern College and Chair of the statewide Predatory Lending Advisory Committee; David Stout, of Alabama Arise; and Kim Rogers from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, will provide additional perspective and thoughts regarding advocacy for change.
There will be time available for Q&A.
