Credit fairness is the idea that everyone should have access to fair and accurate credit scores. We take it a step further by advocating for credit equality, policy advancement and transparency in the credit reporting industry.
This is a complex topic, but it’s one that we feel passionately about at National Legal Center.
For too long, the credit reporting industry has operated without adequate regulation or oversight. This has led to a situation where millions of Americans are at risk of:
- Having incorrect information sent to companies that make lending decisions
- Losing job opportunities because of outdated and inaccurate information
- Making poor financial decisions for the sake of getting a better credit score
These are just a few examples of how the current system is unfair. We believe that everyone deserves equal access to credit opportunities and information.
The first step to achieving this goal is education.
