Washington, DC—The National Consumers League (NCL), America’s pioneering consumer and worker advocacy organization, today applauded the U.S. Senate for its confirmation of Rohit Chopra to serve as the next Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
A true champion for consumer protection, Chopra has worked to promote the public interest throughout his career — as he supported Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in her efforts to establish the CFPB and, later, as he fought against predatory and fraudulent business practices as a Commissioner at the Federal Trade Commission.
The following statement is attributable to Sally Greenberg, NCL’s Executive Director:
“Rohit Chopra is a consumer champion in every sense of the word. His confirmation as Director of the CFPB could not come at a more important time for America. He helped stand up the Bureau in the depth of the Great Recession, when banks’ predatory practices had brought our economy to its knees. He now takes over as CFPB Director at a time when far too many consumers are being forced by the global pandemic to make painful economic choices.
“His extensive experience and passion for protecting consumers is today especially needed. Via our Fraud.org website, NCL hears daily from victims of the types of scams that the CFPB works to prevent.
“NCL looks forward to working with Director Chopra to reinvigorate the CFPB and ensure that it fulfills its mission to protect the most vulnerable American consumers.”
