Americans for Financial Reform Education Fund (AFREF) has been called “the leading voice for Wall Street accountability.” AFREF played a leading role in winning passage of the Dodd Frank Financial Reform law and the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and we are driving the fight for broader transformations of the financial system to advance economic, racial, and social justice. AFREF’s staff develops plans and strategies in collaboration with a coalition of consumer, civil rights, labor, community based, and other organizations, along with academics and policy experts.
