Consumer Protection Racial Justice Statement

The Consumer Protection Practice Group at Legal Aid of Arkansas stands for Racial Justice.

As consumer advocates for communities of color and non-English speaking communities, we stand for racial justice in the marketplace and against unfounded bias whether implicit or explicit. 

As part of our practice, we address the role that race plays in the consumer marketplace. Treating African Americans, communities of color, and limited English speaking communities differently by failing to allow these communities the financial benefit of their hard work is wrong and often illegal. The consumer protection work group at Legal Aid of Arkansas is committed to genuine and sustainable community partnerships aimed at stopping discriminatory sales and post-sale practices in the marketplace.
