The Shriver Center and the National Consumer Law Center offered a series of free webinars featuring Legal Impact Network members and other advocates discussing strategies for applying a race equity lens to consumer law advocacy. In the first session, they discussed why race is a critical part of anti-poverty advocacy generally and consumer advocacy specifically. Second session focused on how Legal Aid of Arkansas changed their approach to consumer advocacy to better support a vibrant community of Marshallese in-migrants being targeted by predatory consumer practices. In the third session, advocates discussed how specific regional histories of indigenous oppression in New Mexico and sharecropping in Mississippi have informed their understanding of the predatory payday lending landscape in their states
